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.
