MDAs Meet on Water Catchment Areas Protection

Ministers and Heads of Agencies on Thursday 9th July 2020 met at the National Water Resources Management (NWRMA) Office, 29 King Herman Road Freetown and discussed the Western Area Water Catchments Protection and Restoration. The discussion of the Ministers and Heads of Agencies was geared towards ensuring proper regulation, management and sustainable use of the country’s water resources as well as ensuring that the environment is protected. Making his statement when chairing the meeting, the Minister of Water Resources, Phillip K. Lansana said collaboration and coordination was needed to map out the roles and responsibilities of each ministry in restoring the catchment areas.  While suggesting for selected catchment areas within the peninsular to be protected, he disclosed that with that done, there will be enough water to serve Freetown. The Minister of the Environment, Dr. Foday Jaward emphasized that because of the importance on the issue, two Ministerial Committees on Lands and Water Resources were set up. He said with the study done by the Catholic Relief Services, it should be expedited with the required funding. Dr. Dennis Sandy, Minister of Lands, Housing and Country Planning while expressing his ministry’s commitment to the speed and efficiency of the process, disclosed that his ministry have identified areas of engagement within the peninsular. He noted the study done by the CRS suggesting the recruitment of ex-service men as guards on the protected areas and also erecting giant colored walls as a demarcation point. Earlier, the CRS presentation of the  Western Area Catchment Assessment done in January 2020 reveals issues of land tenure, increase in deforestation, massive land encroachment, stone mining, lack of reservoirs in some catchment areas and catchment areas left unprotected. The study suggests that all catchment areas within the Western Area should be mapped and demarcated.
