9781464803352: Toward Integrated Water Resources Management in Armenia (Directions in Development)

The Republic of Armenia is facing a number of emerging challenges in the water sector. Though overall water
resource availability in the country is good, the country’s ability to monitor groundwater and surface water is
deteriorating, enforcement under the existing water permit system is weak, conflicts loom over water use in
the agriculturally important Ararat valley, and climate change continues to exert pressure. The performance
of the irrigation, hydropower, municipal, industrial, and environment sectors depends on the judicious and
coordinated wise use of the country’s water resources. Recognizing the importance of integrated water
resources management (IWRM), the government of Armenia has introduced over the last decade major
institutional and policy reforms. These reforms provide a strong legislative foundation and framework for
ensuring good management and development of water resources in the country. Despite this, further
institutional strengthening is needed to fulfill the vision of this legislative framework.

Toward Integrated Water Resources Management in Armenia identifies the challenges in the different water
subsectors, reviews the current institutional framework and implementation of relevant water-sector
policies, and makes recommendations for the next steps to strengthen water resources management in the
country. The book’s overall goal is to provide guidance to the government and to donors to help enhance
Armenia’s future water security.

Book Description World Bank Publications, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This report aims to assess the overall water resources management situation in Armenia to identify opportunities for strengthening water security in the country. The proper management of water resources will continue to play a key role in the socioeconomic development of Armenia. The performance of the irrigation, hydropower, municipal, industrial, and environment sectors depends on the judicious and coordinated wise use of the country s water resources. Though overall water resource availability is good, future pressures (including climate change) may increase tensions across these various water-dependent subsectors. Difficult interallocation decisions may need to be made. Recognizing the importance of integrated water resources management (IWRM), the government of Armenia has introduced over the last decade major institutional and policy reforms. These reforms provide a strong legislative foundation and framework (and concomitant institutional bodies and processes) for ensuring the management and development of water resources in the country. Despite this, further institutional strengthening is needed to fulfill the vision of this legislative framework, especially with respect to decentralization of management roles and responsibilities and the implementation and administration of the water use permit system. This is now even more important in the context of emerging challenges in the water sector. These challenges includes continued deterioration of the country s monitoring network (both for quantity and quality, for both groundwater and surface water), poor water resources planning (from the river basin perspective and across multiple stakeholders), continued weak enforcement under the water permit system (the main regulatory function), concerns over water conflicts in the agriculturally important Ararat valley, growing concerns over transboundary issues, and increased needs for strategic development and management of surface water storage. Recommendations for further action and areas of potential investment and technical assistance support are provided. This report provides guidance to the government and donors for strategic water resource investments in the country to help enhance Armenia s future water security.
