Operationalisation of the São Tomé and Príncipe hydrometric stations

Operationalisation of the São Tomé and Príncipe hydrometric stations


São Tomé and Príncipe has 12 automatic hydrometric stations, which require in-depth maintenance for their effective operation. Taking into account the climate change that has devastated the country, there is a need to adapt and mitigate the impacts that could cause flood and river overflow, and be resilient, through operationalization of hydrometric station for issuing alerts and management of watersheds. The main objectives of the project are:
• Optimise and manage water resources efficiently in order to ensure their correct use, protection and enhancement, guaranteeing the quality of the service provided to the population and the sustainability of existing systems
• Make hydrological stations operational (satellite communication, maintenance, calibration, data processing, purchase of tools and materials)
• Strengthen the hydrological sector legally and institutionally (Legal, Human resources, Job training, material, rolling stock, hydrological portal)
• Promote environmental awareness in order to improve environmental impact, reduce vandalism actions and increase community surveillance.
