Implementation of Hydro-BID at the National Level
In 2014, the IDB¿s pilot application of Hydro-BID for the Piura Basin in Peru simulated future flows under projected climate conditions based on historical flows. This served as the basis for the development of the basin¿s water management plan lead by the National Water Authority (ANA) under the context of an IDB Loan (Modernization of the Water Resource Sector Program, PE-L1070; 2166/OC-PE). Following this successful pilot application, ANA¿s officials requested support from IDB to modify and apply Hydro-BID for modeling the water balance of watersheds, reservoir operations and yields, sediment transport and water quality throughout the country. ANA¿s officials requested to adopt the use of Hydro-BID at a national scale to be used as a water management tool for the agency¿s operations. Given the high interest of ANA to have Hydro-BID as a tool for their water resources management operations, the general objective of this TC is to provide technical support and training for the implementation and use of Hydro-BID in Peru. The use of Hydro-BID at a national scale will support ANA on developing alternatives for infrastructure projects and sectorial policies that will be resilient to anticipated changes in water availability because of climate variability change, and to support development of water resource management plans at the basin, sub-basin and national scales. The specific objective of this TC is aligned with the first work area of Peru¿s country strategy (GN-2668) ¿: (i) improve the integrated management of water resources including issues of water rights, climate change, energy efficiency, financial strategy, water culture, and management according to seasonality and quality, and the vulnerability of water resources in relation to climate change challenges¿. To this end, the specific objective of this TC is to improve the capabilities of ANA for the integrated management of their watersheds by enhancing data management and water resources modeling of watersheds in Peru with limited climatological and flow data and different geographical settings. This objective will be achieved by implementing all five components described under section (III) of this document. In addition, this TC will provide detailed implementation examples of the Hydro¿BID system in Bank project applications, specifically in loan operations in the water sector; and promote the use of Hydro-BID as a decision-support and management tool for Bank projects, and clients through the region. This TC addresses the IDB¿s Ninth General Increase (GCI-9) sector priority ¿Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability¿ by implementing a tool like Hydro-BID that will support ANA with the creation of sustainable practices and policies for the management of the water resources while taking in consideration the present and future effects of climate change.
