Integrated Water Resources Management in the Kabul River Basin

Integrated Water Resources Management project in the Kabul River Basin is financed by the Ministry of Energy, Iran. It consists, among other things, of the following elements: 1) Water resources assessment including assessment of the water availability in time and space and the water demands in the different sectors, 2) Setting up a river basin model for the basin, and 3) Proposal for future water development projects to meet the water requirements by different water users in the basin. The latter involves simulation and optimization of a number of scenarios based on proposed projects and development options.

MIKE SHE assistance, MC Roskilde

MC Roskilde needs an integrated modelling tool for a range of water management tasks addressing both surface water, ground water and the interaction between the groundwater aquifers and streams. The tool must be dynamic and distributed. MC Roskilde has decided to develop the tool on the existing national water resources model with major inputs from DHI. The MIKE SHE / MIKE11 modeling system developed by DHI is applied. The extended and calibrated model is developed to support both regional scale and local scale models ranging from 25 m to 500 m in spatial resolution.
