One of the objectives of IGAD-HYCOS Project is to strengthen the capacities of National Hydrological Services for Water Resources Management.  In this regard, the Project Management Unit (PMU) in collaboration with The Hydraulics Research Center (HRC) in Wad Medani, Sudan organized a Regional Training of Trainers Workshop on Hydrological Forecasting and Time Series Analysis from 11th – 15th January, 2015. The workshop delivered by experts from HRC and Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity was organized for five days including one day in the field (Gebel Aulia Dam and Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity in Khartoum). One of the objectives of the Hydraulic Research Center is to give support for developing and improving water resources and management activities relating to the main sphere of the national economy. The workshop was designed to allow national experts from participating countries to be trained in order to train the other experts in their countries on areas related to Hydrological Forecasting and Time Series Analysis such as hydrological data processing, frequency analysis of time series, flood forecasting systems, rainfall run-off modeling using hec-hms, hydrodynamics modeling, etc.

The well organized Workshop  had 100% attendance by twenty one (21) participants from nine (9) countries (Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda) and three experts from PMU. IGAD-HYCOS Project Manager was also in attendance and his participation, guidance and support contributed positively to the success of the workshop. The country representatives’’ active participation and good attendance reflected their countries interests and commitment in the success of IGAD-HYCOS Project activities.  The workshop was officially opened by Prof. Yasir A. Mohamed, Director General, Hydraulics Research Centre who appreciated IGAD-HYCOS Project Management Unit for selecting HRC to offer the training. The workshop was later closed by Dr. Peter Teh Tabita Shokai, the Minister of Water Resources and Electricity, and was assisted by Dr. Seifeldin Hamad Abdalla.The Report of the workshop and other materials are available in the following links.
