Welcome to WRI

Introduction The Water Resources Institute (WRI) has been established as part of implementation of the Water Sector Reforms and in response to wide consultations that pointed out the need to address water resources related issues such as pollution, climate variability, and reduction in water availability, and to balance water needs for agriculture, energy, industry and households in the country.

The Institute is intended to bridge the gap between theory and practice. It will profile the central position of water resources in national development with a vision of ensuring that Uganda’s water resources are utilized optimally. Its core business is to be a Centre of excellence that provides cutting edge applied research and training; delivers continuous professional skills development across all levels in water resources management and development, and serves as a neutral place for dialogue and outreach.
