Water Management

DOI-ITAP partners with NGOs and governments around the world to strengthen water resource management. Below are some selected examples of DOI-ITAP's recent work on water!


Supporting Water Security Worldwide (Global) 

The U.S. Global Water Strategy envisions a water-secure world that advances health, prosperity, stability, and resilience through sustainable and equitable water management and access to safe drinking water, sanitation services, and hygiene. 

DOI-ITAP supports the U.S. Global Water Strategy through the Ambassador’s Water Experts Program, which sends U.S. water experts abroad to assist foreign government partners with solving key water challenges. 

With support from the U.S. Department of State, the Ambassador’s Water Experts Program has delivered water technical assistance to more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East

Improving Safeguards for Infrastructure in Southeast Asia (Regional) 

DOI-ITAP's Smart Infrastructure for the Mekong (SIM) project assisted the governments of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam in reducing the negative impacts of hydropower dams, irrigation systems, and other infrastructure development on downstream communities. 

This project strengthened environmental safeguards on hydropower, protected fisheries and wildlife, assessed the effects of development on riparian ecology, improved technical capacity of policymakers, and advanced environmental law and policy.  

This project was funded by USAID's Regional Development Mission in Asia (RDMA) and the Department of State’s Lower Mekong Initiative.
