Construction works for the foundation bridge at the Liwonde Barrage is set to start soon.

The barrage is being upgraded to regulate the amount of water going down stream which could as well be used when the water levels are low.

The Site Manager for Shire River Basin Water Management Project Hamilton Nyasulu has disclosed that the project will be finished by October 2017.

The total cost of the project is 45 million United States dollars.

The development objective of the Adaptable Program Loan for Shire River Basin Management Program Project is to develop Shire River Basin planning framework to improve land and water management for ecosystem and livelihood benefits in target areas.

There are three components to the project.

The first component of the project is Shire Basin planning. This component will finance development of a modern integrated Shire Basin knowledge base and analytical tools, as well as well-planned structured stakeholder consultation processes, in order to facilitate investment planning and systems operation.

 The second component of the project is catchment management. Has as objective that targeted sub-catchments and protected areas are rehabilitated and managed for reduced erosion and impbhbjhuhroved livelihoods.

The third component of the project is water related infrastructure. Has an aim that new investments enable improved regulation of shire flows and strengthen climate resilience.

This will aim to rehabilitate four catchments, Upper Lisungwi, Upper Wamkulumadzi, Kapichira Falls and Chingale, covering a combined area of approximately 133,000 ha. The project will develop methods to reduce soil erosion, utilise soil conservation methods and improve and diversify livelihoods.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    With thanks
