The overall goal of the project "IWAREMA Zambia" in the context of the TIGER initiative is to develop spatial data inputs for an integrated management concept for Zambia's water resources which has been set up by the Zambian government.

The specific objectives are to provide the end-user team - consisting of the Ministry of Energy and Water Development (MEWD) through the Department of Water Affairs (DWA), the University of Zambia and specific departments of other responsible Ministries - with the following service products:

  • Mapping of water resources in the Zambezi/Kafue River Basin from satellite images;
  • Dam location in the Zambezi/Kafue River Basin;
  • Land cover maps, provided at a regular interval, and specific change indicators; and
  • Regular information bulletins for decision and policy makers as an outcome of the integrated analysis of the products.

The products are derived from earth observation data (MERIS and Landsat) and shall enable the end-users to increase their capabilities in the management of their water resources.
