Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) is a wholly government owned parastatal under the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate. ZINWA’s main mandate is to ensure optimum planning, development, utilisation and management of water resources in Zimbabwe in a transparent and sustainable manner with the participation of all stakeholders at all levels.

The Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate in conjunction with Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA), engaged two local environment consultancy companies that are jointly called the Outrun Investments - Green Resources Consortium (The Consortium) to carry out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Study for the National Matabeleland Zambezi Water Project (NMZWP). The project scope covers land clearing, trenching and construction of; Gwayi-Tshangani Dam (GTD), twin-pipeline from GTD to Cowdray Park in Bulawayo, low lift & booster pump stations and a link pipeline from Deka-Zambezi confluence to Kennedy Siding where it will meet the twin-pipes. According, to the Environmental Management Act (Chapter 20:27), Sections 97-98 and S.I 7 of 2007, Part III, this is a “prescribed project”, thus, it needs an EIA prior to implementation of the project.

In line with the legal requirements and best practices for such projects, The Consortium hereby invites stakeholder comments to the proposed project as part of the stakeholder consultation process. This public notice serves to inform that as part of the ongoing EIA stakeholder consultation process, the consortium shall be facilitating meetings at various venues at stipulated times and dates as shown in the table.

For those who may not be able to attend to these meetings feel free to contact ZINWA or the consultant through the contact details below. Though stakeholder consultation will be maintained throughout the project life-cycle, you are requested to submit your comments before 30 January 2014 to facilitate finalisation and submission of the EIA Report to the Environmental Management Agency (EMA) for review.
