GWP South Asia attended a national key water sector stakeholder discussion held on 8 August 2019 in Colombo organised by the Programme Management Unit of the Mahaweli Water Security Investment Programme (MWSIP) under its consultancy package “Strengthening of Integrated Water Resources Management (SIWRM)” in Sri Lanka.

The specific discussion was held with the involvement of a multi-disciplinary team represented by national and international water technocrats, to initiate developing a Terms of Reference (ToR) for SIWRM Consultancy by defining the entry points for consultancy interventions, which will be most effective in tackling the present less efficient approach to water resources management in Sri Lanka. Lal Induruwage, Regional Coordinator, GWP South Asia and Ranjith Ratnayake, Country Coordinator, GWP Sri Lanka have also took part in the discussion while Mr Ratnayake was invited to deliver the closing remarks of the day’s meeting.
