Sub-Catchment Management Plan (SCMP) is a tool developed to support protection, conservation and management of water resources and related natural resources within the sub-catchment to ensure sustainable and balanced water r
esources utilization for both socio-economic benefits and ecosystem management.
SCMP focuses on problems related to protection, conservation and management of water resources, ecosystem and other related natural resources including socio-economic activities that majorly depend on natural resources within the sub-catchment. It presents analysis of the problems and identifies sustainable solution strategies for proper management of water resources (quantity and quality), improvement of catchment conditions and enhancement of livelihoods. In addition, it analyses institutional capacity for effective and efficient implementation of the identified sustainable solution strategies. The SCMP provides a framework for which various stakeholders can participate in a coordinated integrated water resources management activities.
