This study examines Sustainable Water Resource Management (SWRM) using Water Rights Database System (WRDS). The study explores the WRDS of the Water Resources Commission (WRC), Ghana, as a case study, for regulating and managing water resource. It looks at the functions, strengths and weaknesses of the WRDS; the assistance of the Invoicing Database Sub-System (IDSS); and the need to incorporate Quality Management Assurance (QMA) into the WRDS. Water Resource Management (WRM) has been a bane to most countries, albeit, not excluding the developed ones. The Board of the World Bank therefore, taking cognizance of the Rio Earth Summit of 1992, initiated plans in 1993 for a framework to contain the myriads of problems associated with WRM. The WRDS has been successfully implemented, used for capturing data, regulating and monitoring the water resource of Ghana, and generating management reports for decision-making activities.
