Sustainable Groundwater Management In SADC Member States Project Phase 2

The Project Development Objective is to develop capacity and knowledge for inclusive groundwater management in the SADC region at the national and transboundary levels.

Key Results (From PCN)

The proposed project deepens and broadens the efforts to support the SADC Member States and Transboundary River Basin Organizations (RBOs) to operationalize advances in knowledge generation and dissemination, to institutionalize gains in the capacity at local, national, and transboundary levels to manage groundwater resources sustainably, and equitably as well as to develop infrastructure solutions based on broad-based and inclusive consultations that are ready to be scaled up through investment programs. Continued support for groundwater institutional development will lead to Improved groundwater management in the SADC region at the transboundary, national and local level which contributes to improved access to water and builds resilience against climate-induced shocks for sustainable livelihoods. Expected outcomes generated from the combined activities under each of the project components: improved and equitable capacity of key institutions to manage groundwater in the SADC region at the transboundary, national and local level, improved knowledge on the status of groundwater resources readily available and improved access to water of local communities contributing to improved livelihoods, increased economic opportunities and reduced vulnerability to climate-induced shocks that take into account the undue burden on women and other vulnerable populations.
