Egypt is unique among the nations of the world due to its extraordinary dependence upon a single water source, the River Nile, which is the longest river in the world .For more than 5000 years, Egyptians have been managing Nile Water for irrigation through a series of hydraulic structures "Dams and Barrages" starting from Aswan High Dam at lake Nasser in the south, to Zefta and Edfina Barrages at the Mediterranean sea in the North.
The planning, implementation, operation and management of the irrigation and drainage system in Egypt is carried out by the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation (MWRI).
The Training Center of the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation at the 6th October City (25 km from Cairo )(TC-MWRI) was established in 1994. The center's goal is to develop the skills of the MWRI professional and non-professional staff to improve their on-the job performance. This is done through well-structured training courses, seminars, conferences, etc.
In addition, it offers its facilities and services to other ministries, international organizations, and regional countries.
