Enhancement of water resources management and flood preparedness

Multiple water sources development and effective water saving, reservoir watershed conservation and governance, enhancement of resilient governance of watershed management and preparedness of flood prevention, and develop sustainable water environment

To ensure the stability of water supply, WRA sets up the 4 strategies of "New Water Resources Development ,Water Saving, Cross-regional support and Back-up Water" to enhance the watershed conservation and resilient governance, and promotes the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development projects-Water Environment Construction".

1.Work Scope
To respond the serious situation of high risk and rapid fluctuation of droughts and floods due to the extreme climate, WRA will promote actively the works of "water resources planning and conservation" , "water resources development and maintenance" , "water environment development of river, coast and drainage system" and "water resources technology development" with the overview vision and new concept to continuously solve the problems of flood and drought disasters in Taiwan.

2.Promotion methods
(1)Water resources planning and conservation
Executing the three projects: promotion of smart water management system and water saving technology; enhancement of reservoir watershed conservation and governance; No.3 item of the third stage of conservation project in the Taipei Water Management Area.
