The proposed study consists of three main components:
(i) Site Investigations and Development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) database, including inspections and data collection for 200 hydraulic structures in 75 locations;
(ii) Safety Evaluations and Development of a Decision Support System, including undertaking a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and socio-economic cost-benefit analysis for the structures; and
(iii) Development of a Master Plan and Preparation of a capital investment project for the top priority major structure identified under the study.
The objective of the study is to assess and design improvements of major hydraulic facilities and thus contribute to the implementation of Egypt's Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) plan. The IWRM plan aims at improving water distribution and allocation efficiency and reducing the risks of flooding and damage to life and property in the case of the failure of hydraulic control structures in the country.
This objective is to be attained through:
(i) the preparation of a Master Plan for the rehabilitation/ replacement of major hydraulic control structures on the Nile and
(ii) the preparation of a capital investment project for the rehabilitation or replacement of one priority major structure identified under the study in order to facilitate the mobilisation of funds for implementation
Contribute to the improvement of water distribution and allocation efficiency in Egypt and the reduction of the risks of flooding and damage to life and property through the: 1.Preparation of a Master Plan for the rehabilitation/ replacement of major hydraulic control structures on the Nile. 2.Preparation of a capital investment project for a to priority major structure in order to facilitate the mobilisation of funds for implementation.
