The proposed Water Resources Action Plan (WRAP) for Zambia was initiated by the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) by a request to the World in Bank February 1997 to discuss possible support in the development of the nation's water resources management (WRM) capacity. The WRAP sets out to develop and implement strategies for national and local water resurseces management, at the same time building awareness and capacity across socity. A basis for co-operation was formed during the initial World Bank - NORAD mission to Zambia April 12 to 23, 1997. A draft WRAP proposal was subsequently prepared by GRZ, and served as a basis for a second joint preparatory mission to Zambia October 20 to 31, 1997. October 20 to 31, 1997. This Mission Report is a summary of findings and agreed follow-up actions after the last visit to Zambia. The report adresses some additional key issues and provides some supplementary assessment specifically called for by NORAD. In conclusion, the mission was pleased with Government's interest and commitment, and with the progress made by Government since the first mission. Funding to launch the process is secured and there is significant interest in full-scale funding of the program. However, the mission identified some potential constraints which might hamper the progress and achievements of the WRAP, such as resource limitations and current lack of cooperation between institutions dealing with WRM. The report discusses opportunities to cope with the bottlenecks.
