Project Manager- Harare Wetlands Trust

Harare Wetlands Trust
Harare Wetlands Trust is a locally registered umbrella trust incorporating Civil Society Organizations, Community Based Organizations and concerned individuals promoting the conservation of Harare`s Wetland Ecosystems to ensure sustainable provisioning of water for Greater Harare.

The City of Harare is built within the head waters of the Upper Manyame Catchment Basin, a wetland ecosystem located at the top of the watershed that provides many essential and highly valuable services such as water provisioning, water purification, water storage and regulation, flood mitigation and carbon storage; a habitat that supports wetland biodiversity, fresh air, recreational space and more to the citizens of Harare. The wetland ecosystem forms the primary water catchment area for the City feeding water into the dams downstream and replenishing and purifying the underground water table. It is an extensive single natural ecological system within the catchment basin.
Unregulated infrastructural developments as well as cultivation are taking place on wetlands at an unprecedented rate causing their degradation which are adversely affecting the overall functioning of this fragile ecosystem with immediate and serious implications for the Harare Metropolitan area running out of both ground and surface water to supply to several million inhabitants.
