Keynote: Achieving the Water, Ocean and Related Sustainable Development Goals (Andrew Hudson, UNDP) by Mish Hamid — last modified Jun 03, 2016 12:22 PM
The SDGs represent an integrated, holistic vision for development at the global, national, local and individual levels. The GEF occupies a unique space in the global partnership for sustainable development, and is well placed to support the vision embodied in the SDGs. The GEF supports efforts across multiple, interlinked global environment domains that are closely aligned with the SDGs on climate, oceans and marine resources, as well as terrestrial ecosystems, forests, biodiversity and land degradation. GEF international waters projects are built upon country-driven processes and dialogues that lead to ward transboundary cooperation. Legal and institutional frameworks, but particularly national policies and regulations help drive what gets achieved in GEF IW project implementation. This keynote speech by Dr. Andrew Hudson, Head of Water and Oceans Governance at the United Nations Development Programm, looked at what and how IW projects might achieve at the country-level in terms of achieving the SDGs. Footage and production by Francois Odendaal Productions.

SADC Water Sector produces documentaries on Regional Water Cooperation by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Feb 03, 2015 09:55 AM
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) region is home to more than 260 million people and exhibits a great diversity in culture, nature, people and ways of life. One of the characteristic features of the Region is the transboundary nature of its rivers, lakes and groundwater bodies: 15 great rivers with their respective river basins in Southern Africa are shared between two or more countries. Water, however, does not recognise international boundaries. The joint management, protection and utilisation of water in Southern Africa is therefore not an option - it is a necessity. Bridging Waters is a docu-drama series illustrating how water in Southern Africa is sustainably managed according to SADC's important Protocol on Shared Watercourses. Narrated through the lives of those residing along Southern Africa's majestic rivers and depicting their daily challenges, Bridging Waters connects the local setting with the wider importance of transboundary water management. Bridging Waters exemplifies the success and local impacts of improved cooperation between the countries that share Southern Africa's waters. Shot in 10 countries over a period of two years, the series delves into the waters of the Zambezi, the Limpopo, the Kunene, the Ruvuma and the Orange-Senqu. Rivers are the lifelines of Africa, and it is up to all of us to keep them flowing: clean and jointly managed for the benefit of all.

Risking the River- Perspectives on Nile Basin Cooperation by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 28, 2014 08:11 AM
The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) has achieved a lot since its establishment in 1999. For the first time ever, NBI has provided Nile riparian countries an all-inclusive platform for dialogue, consultation and confidence building; a platform for technical capacity building, investment promotion and transboundary water resource planning and management taking the entire Nile as one hydrologic unit. Given the threat of climate change impacts on the fragile and finite Nile and given the growing pressure the river is to sustain due to population and economic growth, there is no alternative to regional cooperation. No country is strong enough to manage these challenges unilaterally. Hence, the need for sustaining these gains, even more the need for broadening and deepening Nile Basin Cooperation.
