Water resources knowledge base development Nepal.

In Nepal, the need arose for insight into the catchment areas of rivers. In cooperation with Mott MacDonald, Nelen & Schuurman developed a management information system for this purpose.The information system contains a vast number of key performance indicators per region, which can be unlocked through the Lizard webinterface. Examples include drinking water, saniation and child mortality.

De database is available through Internet on a national, provincial and district level. Besides visualizing posibilities the application also includes reporting capabilities, ability to update the database and a search function. The database can be consulted from Nepal and the World Bank in New York.
