Water Resources Management

Water resources management encompasses the efforts of stakeholders to protect freshwater ecosystems that provide drinking water. USAID helps partner countries better cope with rising pressures on water-stressed river basins by engaging with stakeholders to develop water allocation plans that secure the availability of water for households, improve storage and quality of water through sustainably managed watersheds, and promote adaptive innovations to build resilience and reduce water-related risk.

Fact Sheet

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Supply Data Monitoring and Analysis

The Kabul River Basin flows through eastern Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan and is crucial to the livelihoods of millions of people for domestic water supplies, agriculture, power generation, and industry.

The USGS Water Supply Data Monitoring and Analysis activity, through support from USAID, is building the capacity of the Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW) to improve management of the Kabul River Basin through increasing water-data availability and analysis. The activity runs from January 2018 to December 2022.
