The Eastern Nile Multipurpose Option Scoping (ENMOS) model is used to establish optimal allocation of resources that maximize the benefit across Eastern Nile countries and serves as an instrument to examine whether joint WEF development and management is a better approach than unilateral actions by sectors and riparian countries. ENMOS is an integrated optimization model where the objective is to maximize the net economic benefits from water use mainly in agriculture and hydropower subjected to a range of constraints in a river basin context. The ENMOS data base incorporates information on hydrologic systems (flow, conveyance), agronomic systems (crop yield, crop water requirement), water management infrastructures (dams and barrages) and their characteristics.It also contains a GIS data on the boundary of the basin (country, administration), existing and proposed hydropower and irrigation sites, and hydrology.
