The Water Use Master Plan is a planning process applying an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach. It is a response to the widely felt need for an instrument for local actors to address water management issues properly. The WUMP process ensures identification of available water resources and water needs at the level of a Village Development Committee (VDC), the lowest administrative unit in Nepal (‘commune’). Moreover, it provides an overview about available and needed water-related infrastructure. This enables planning/prioritizing the use of available water resources (drinking water, irrigation, water for nature and other uses) and serves as a basis for sound investments in the water sector.
