FileDinaric Karst Aquifer System Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis by Mish Hamid — last modified Sep 25, 2014 04:45 PM
December 2013. The Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) described in this summary was conducted in the framework of a project 'Protection and Sustainable Use of the Dinaric Karst Transboundary Aquifer System (DIKTAS). The DIKTAS project is a regional project that is aimed improving the management of karst groundwaters contained in the Dinaric Karst and shared by several countries in South-Eastern Europe. The TDA was conducted in the period 2011-2013 by the DIKTAS Project Team in accordance with the GEF guidelines provided in the TDA/SAP Training manual. The TDA is based on a substantial regional analysis that is required in order to fully understand the context of transboundary issues. The regional analysis was particularly important given the complexity of the karst environment and regime and the interconnectivity of karst aquifers. The regional analysis also enabled a delineation of transboundary aquifers (TBAs) shared by the project countries. The Project Team was organised in four working groups, reflecting the main issues of the regional analysis: a hydrogeological characterization; an environmental and socio-economical assessment; an assessment of the legal and institutional frameworks and policies; and a regional stakeholder analysis.

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.

FileRehabilitating rangelands for healthy headwaters by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 27, 2014 12:38 PM
The highlands of Lesotho form the headwaters of the Orange–Senqu, which drains one of the largest river basins in southern Africa. It provides the water required to drive the most economically active area in southern Africa, supports large-scale irrigation and meets the domestic needs of 19 million people. In spite of making up less than five per cent of the basin area, Lesotho contributes over forty per cent of the Orange–Senqu’s natural runoff. The well-watered grasslands that characterise Lesotho are essential for the retention and slow release of water, which help stabilise stream flow, attenuate floods, reduce sediment loads and absorb nutrients. These services are, however, at risk because the rangelands are being degraded through overuse, making them vulnerable to erosion. Soil is being washed away and the land is becoming less productive, making it more difficult for rural households to make a living; the waters of the Orange–Senqu are laden with silt and their flow is less tempered by the grasslands.

FileKid's TDA mock-up Pule’s River Journey: An Exploration of the Orange-Senqu River Basin for Children by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 26, 2014 12:44 PM
Drawing on the Orange–Senqu River Basin Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (2014) and a number of other relevant sources, this children’s book highlights the characteristics of the river basin – its resources, the people and economies it supports, and its problems – in a way that is accessible to a younger audience. Designed for the future custodians of this river basin and the resources it provides, this book gives an insight into the diversity of the basin and the importance of a common understanding of pertinent management challenges to the nations that share the river basin and which collaborate to address them.
FileORASECOM Newsletter - May 2014 by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 26, 2014 12:17 PM
The past few years have been a productive and exciting time for ORASE COM. We have proactively and tangibly advanced towards an improved and integrated approach for the management of the Orange–Senqu River basin. This has been enabled by the generous and much-appreciated support of our international cooperating partners (ICPs). With their support, we have defined a vision and identified strategic objectives for ORASE COM; identified priority transboundary environmental problems and how to address them through the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) and Strategic Action Programme (SAP) process; and are well on our way in drafting a comprehensive Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Plan for the basin. Through collaboration and conscious effort to dovetail the SAP and IWRM Plan processes – our two main projects – the SAP is now recognised by ORASE COM and its partners as the environmental component of the IWRM plan.
FileBay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem Strategic Action Programme by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Sep 03, 2014 06:17 AM
The Strategic Action Programme (SAP) is a comprehensive plan to address the major fisheries, environmental and socio-economic problems affecting the Bay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem (BOBLME). The SAP has been developed by the Bay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem Project in close collaboration with relevant stakeholders from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. It recognizes that many of the issues facing BOBLME are transboundary in nature and that improved regional collaboration and management holds the greatest promise of positive change. The document is based on the transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) which was endorsed in March 2012 by the eight BOBLME countries. The SAP currently exists as a draft version and should be finalized by late 2014.
