The Zambia Water Resources Development Project’s (WRDP) Project Development Objective (PDO) supported the implementation of an integrated framework for the development and management of water resources in Zambia. The project, financed by the World Bank (USD 50 M), became effective on December 24, 2013 and closed on November 30, 2018. The project consisted of three main components: A) water resources management; B) water resources development; and C) institutional support. The project was implemented by the Zambian Ministry of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection (MWDSEP).


Despite the efforts of both GRZ and the World Bank; for an array of reasons, WRDP was closed in 2018, with non-compliance issues in regards to social and environmental safeguards, and dam safety issues unresolved. Since its closure, the World Bank and GRZ have worked together to address these outstanding issues. In March of 2020, UNOPS was engaged in ISDP Phase 1 to provide services including: planning (support of surveillance and emergency preparedness) for 10 dams and design, updating of environmental and social safeguards instruments to comply with WB social and environmental policies for 10 dams and tendering of the works for 10 dams.  The agreement for IDSP Phase 1 is scheduled to end on 31 January 2023


The goal of the project in Phase 2 is to protect local communities in the impacted area of 10 dams across Zambia and to comply with environmental and social safeguards in accordance with the Government of Zambia and WB policies. There are imminent risks posed by the 10 dams in their current state, and the objectives are both short (mitigate identified risks to the local communities and their livelihoods) and long-term (implement infrastructure works to remediate the dams to make them safe).


Due to the urgency in implementing the solutions, it has been agreed to split Phase 2 into two overlapping sequential stages that allows to implement the solution for seven (7) dams (Ngolongozya, Makaba, Ndondi, Nachibanga, Kawiko, Nabowa and Kanyika) while working in parallel to finalise the Detailed Design and procurement award for remaining three (3) dams (Chibalashi, Katembula and Chikowa.
