Building water modelling capacity in Egypt

Online training in Source helps build water modelling capacity in Egypt.

Following a request from the Embassy of Egypt in Canberra, eWater established relations with the Egyptian Department of Water Resources and Irrigation and assisted Department water managers to build capacity in water management modelling and scenario analysis.

The project had three phases:

  • On-line training packages on the generic aspects of Source and was provided online from Canberra.
  • Face-to-face training, which included the Egyptian modellers collecting data for and developing a pilot model for an irrigation district in the Nile River basin. This was complemented by a field visit.
  • Post training support, by email and webinars.
