  1. 1. Near East & North Africa Land and Water Days, Amman, 15-18 December 2013 Connecting transboundary water resources management with national visions and plans in Lebanon by S.Sarraf
  2. 2. Basin area 244 km² Length of the river 52 km Mean annual flow 377MCM Estimated population 100,000
  3. 3. National views and Plans in Lebanon for Al-Kabir Basin  Additional water resources  Expand the irrigation network to satisfy the needs of the population (from 1,700 to almost 6,700 ha)  Address pollution issues (water Hyacinth)  Address recurrent flood control
  4. 4. Basin area 2,016 km² Length of the river 38 km Mean annual flow 410 MCM Estimated population 381,000
  5. 5. National views and Plans in Lebanon for Al-Assi/Orontes Basin  Additional water resources, by increasing water storage  New irrigation schemes covering an area of 6,800 ha  Address pollution issues (Wastewater treatment plants)  Power generation of 50 MW
  6. 6. Basin area 600 km² Length of the river 21 km Mean annual flow 143 MCM Estimated population 170,000
  7. 7. Government’s projects considered for the Hasbani water course region.  The Wazzani Water Supply Project (WWSP)  The Hasbaya-Hebariyah Water Project  Ibl al Saki Storage Dam Project  The Hasbaya Waste water Project
