World Water Development Report 2012 describes that water management can be broadly classified into managing three important aspects of water: the resource, the water services and the trade-offs for competing demands. The task of water managers has been made more difficult given the complexity of demands, the uncertainty of availability and supply, issues of quality and issues of long term planning especially under the climate change scenarios. In this context, the water resources management is a process in which all the stakeholders and resources are considered in a comprehensive manner to maximise the economic and social welfare in a sustainable manner without compromising the sustainability of ecosystems.   Africa has more than 50 important water basins covering almost all African countries. The entire national territories of around fourteen countries fall within shared river basins. About one-third of the world's international river basins are found in Sub-Saharan Africa wherein international river basins are the principal source of water resources. Thirty-five countries in the region share the seventeen major river basins. In this background, as highlighted in a UN report on ‘Water in Africa’, the key issue is the application of water resources management to the concept of water scarcity in Africa. The report also underline that more than 300 million African people live in water-scarce environment of the estimated 800 million who live on the African continent.
