Dr. Steve Lyon joined the editorial board of the newly launched Journal of Water Resources, Engineering, Management and Policy. 

JWEMP is a Tanzanian-based publication managed by the Tanzanian Ministry of Water and hosted by Water Institute.

Dr. Lyon was invited to join the editorial board based on his years of research and capacity building in Tanzania and sub-Saharan Africa focused around water resources and sustainability.

JWEMPO aims to facilitate publication of articles for raising awareness, and empowering water stakeholders including the general public, academicians, field practitioners, policy decision makers and politicians, with up to date water sector related information. The journal is dedicated to the dissemination of high-quality information on the science, policy, practice of water resources and management, irrigation, sanitation, hygiene and wastewater management at local, national and international levels.

The first issue of JWEMPO is planned for March 2022 to correspond with World Water Day.
