Individual Consultant (Water Quality Modeller) to develop the Nile Basin Multi-Criteria
Analysis to Prioritize Investments in identified Hotspots.
Grant No: TF0B4716, Project ID: P172848
The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI)/ Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Program Coordination Unit (NELSAP-CU) has received a grant from the World Bank through the Cooperation in International Waters in Africa (CIWA) Trust Fund to finance the Nile Cooperation for Climate Resilience (NCCR) Project.
Proposed Project Objectives
The overall objective of this project activity is to support the basin member countries in identifying, discussing, and prioritizing potential water quality investments that can contribute to addressing the challenges facing the water quality of the basin water systems using multi-criteria decision analysis. Multiple criteria analysis (MCA) is a framework for ranking or scoring the overall performance of decision options against multiple objectives. The approach has widespread and growing application in the field of water resource management. It is being heavily used for water policy evaluation, strategic planning and infrastructure selection. A wide range of MCA methods are being used with the fuzzy set analysis, paired comparison and outranking methods being most common.
