Submission Deadline: Wednesday 8 July 2020, 12.00pm (AEST)
The Australian Water Partnership (AWP) is looking for a Senior Hydrologist with modelling capacity to lead the review of the Upper Ayeyarwady hydrology and to develop the approach and methodology for the Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC) researchers to extend this exercise to the whole Ayeyarwady Basin through capacity development.
The Government of Myanmar (GoM) has invested US$8M in loan funds from The World Bank in the development of the Ayeyarwady Decision Support System (DSS) and Basin Master Plan for the Ayeyarwady Basin. This is being implemented under Component 1 (C1) of the Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management Project (AIRMBP). The accuracy of the hydrology underpinning the DSS and the DSS elements is important to underpin future water-related investment in Myanmar.
The critical issue is that the Consultants (a DHI-led consortium) engaged to implement the DSS and Basin Master Plan have discovered that the flows from the tributaries in north and west of the Basin are 30% less than previous data saved in local records/archives. Therefore, the consultants have chosen to use their study results that are likely more reliable than previous records. Independent validation of this will be fundamental to ensure that GoM has the best information to base its investment decisions on.
This activity builds on previous and ongoing AWP investments in the State of Basin Assessment (SOBA) and in carrying out a hydrological data audit and scoping model for the HIC and twinning arrangement between Murray-Darling and Ayeyarwady.
