Good Modelling Practise for Water Managmement by soraiya — last modified Mar 07, 2010 03:06 PM
The Institute for Inland Water Management and Wastewater Treatment (RWS/RIZA) has taken the initiative to facilitate quality assurance (QA) in modelling and simulation. In a period of 7 months the project team has produced a handbook of Good Modelling Practice. At first the project team defined the requirements to such a handbook and explored the experiences, guidelines and documents on GMP at several research institutes and in literature. Subsequent a ontology (i.e. shared body of knowledge) on modelling and simulation has been developed. A major part of the handbook consists of a survey of common problems and pitfalls, both on a general and on a model type dependent level. The present version of the handbook has been tested by inexperienced modellers (students) and experienced modellers and model users from the participating institutes.
FileInternationally Shared (Transboundary) Aquifer Resources Management: Their Significance and Sustainable Management, A Framework Document by admin — last modified Mar 07, 2010 07:04 PM
The purpose of this document is to summarise the current understanding of transboundary aquifers, demonstrate their significance in water resource management and to highlight the fact that as yet there is very little international experience in the approaches needed for their shared management. Unlike transboundary surface water and river basins, transboundary aquifers are not well known to policy makers. Present International Law does not adequately address the issues concerning spatial flow of ground waters and has limited application in conditions where impacts from neighbouring countries can be subtle to develop. Scientific correlation of the hydrogeology of such aquifers is often deficient and issues related to shared, sustainable production remain blurred because of poorly developed institutions and a lack of capacity and awareness. The ISARM Programme seeks to address these issues.

The Global Environment Facility forges international cooperation and finances actions to address six critical threats to the global environment: biodiversity loss, climate change, degradation of international waters, ozone depletion, land degradation, and persistent organic pollutants (POPs). The GEF has allocated $4 billion in grants and leveraged an additional $12 billion in co-financing from other sources to support more than 1,000 projects in over 140 developing nations and countries with economies in transition. In August 2002, 32 donor nations pledged nearly $3 billion to fund the work of the GEF for the next four years. GEF brings together 173 member governments, working in partnership with the private sector, NGOs, and international institutions to address complex environmental issues while supporting national sustainable development initiatives.

FileGuidelines for developing TORs for Final Evaluations by admin — last modified Mar 07, 2007 11:47 AM
In June 2003 the GEF M&E independent unit in Washington developed ?GEF Guidelines for Implementing Agencies to conduct Terminal (Final) Evaluations? that provide general principles and minimum standards to carry out this important exercise. The present document has been prepared by UNDP/GEF M&E to complement the GEF guidelines. It provides more detailed guidance for formulating the Terms of Reference (TOR) of the evaluation, the first, and most critical step in the process of evaluating a project. <p> The TOR is a written document that defines, among other elements, the issues that the evaluation should address and the products expected from it. As such, it is an essential tool for ensuring that the evaluation mission is effectively carried out. It is strongly recommended to a) invest adequate time in formulating and refining the TOR and b) to involve key stakeholders in the process in order to reflect their views and interests in the TOR.
