Wetlands International Facilitation of a Training and Development of a Manual on Integrated Catchment Management, Wetlands Restoration & CR WASH Jobs in Ethiopia

Purpose of the Terms of Reference

  • Catchment area can be defined as the A drainage basin or catchment basin is an extent or an area of land where all surface water from precipitation converges to a single point at a lower elevation, where the stream joins another body of water, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea, or ocean.

  • A catchment is a hydrological area where all surface water converges to a single exit point at a lower elevation, Also defined as an area from which surface runoff is carried away by a single drainage system.Catchments can be defined based upon a number of factors, including distance to the facility, actual travel time to the facility, geographic boundaries or population within the catchment.

  • In a distance based catchment, the area serviced will often depend on the number of visits expected to that institution by each individual.

  • The study of erosion and sediment yield from catchment is of utmost importance as the deposition of sediment in reservoir reduces its capacity, thus affectin

  • g the water available for the designated use. The eroded sediment from catchment when deposited on streambeds and banks causes braiding of river reach.

  • The removal of top fertile soil from catchment adversely affects the agricultural production and silt laden water affect the turbine blades thereby affect the
    hydro power production.

  • Another important factor that adds to the sediment load is due to grazing of animals. A large number of cattle, sheep, and goats graze the pastures continuously for about six months in a mountainous region.
