1 Integrated Modeling of RMS Impacts: Hydrological Processes, and Water Resources Modeling Team: IWMI (Charlotte, Solomon) Cornell (Tamo, Dan, Zack) SEI (David, Paco) BDU (Seifu, Esaya) NBI (Mekuria, Yesuf, Solomon)

2 Objectives 1.Assess integrated biophysical impacts of RMS practices and large-scale developments on water availability, sediment load (and groundwater recharge) 2.Device mechanisms of incorporating RMS practices into basin IWRM planning 3.Investigate up- and out-scaling options of RMS practices using sustainability criteria of satisfying downstream requirements

3 Framework Watersheds Sub-basins Abay Basin SWAT Model Climate Soil LU TI WEAP Model RMS Scenarios L-S Dev’t Scenarios Impact Evaluation Large dams and River Junctions

4 WEAP Modeling  Large-scale development interventions (practices): −Water control and storage infrastructures −Irrigation schemes −Hydropower plants −Environmental flows  Improved schematization for SWAT-WEAP linkages  SEI provided first feedback on the WEAP setup  Scenario definition (development + RMS) ?

5 WEAP Schematization Dams / Reservoirs Irrigation demands River Networks

6 SWAT-WEAP Interface SWAT sub-catchments Dams / Reservoirs Irrigation demands River Networks

7 SWAT Modeling  SWAT initialized based on WEAP requirements and flow data availability  Landuse, soil and climate data improved  Variable sources area (VSA) concept implemented using TI  GIS Tool developed for the Soil-TI derivation  Calibration and RMS scenarios
