    • GWPSA pgm – many small project activities to more pgm focus
    • Projects come to an end! (CWP activities and sustainability)
    • Capacity and continuity of Secretariat staff (incl finance & technical - IWRM)
    • Developing donor relationships & involvement – contd meaningful delivery, trust & accountability & ‘professionalism’ (but ‘comfort of a few only’ – broaden support)
    • Developed stronger strategic alliances (WaterNet/Cap-Net, IUCN, IWSD, Inwent, IWMI, FANRPAN etc)
    • Ensuring alignment with SADC regional priority framework and CWP – national priority frameworks
  • Changes & Challenges
    • Previously well resourced region – impact of economic down turn?
    • Donor agreements – towards efficiency – streamlining of funds & ‘basket’ (Sida) –broaden programme support base vs nature of wk??
    • SADC-GWPSA relationship & alignment – essential … but donor preference – SADC channel - competition for funds? Relationship?
    • Need solid IWRM pgm, vibrant & well capacitated RWP & CWPs - sustained
    • Capacity to fundraise
    • Facilitate – outcomes vs ‘impacts on the ground’ (figure)
  • Thanks to Paul Crawford RESOURCES OUTPUTS OUTCOMES IMPACT CONTROL Boundary actors GWP team Ultimate beneficiaries Strategic partners Other actors and factors
  • Addressing the Challenges
    • Revised/ aligned regional strategy (2 pgm goals/2 enabling goals)
    • GWPS Strategic Business Plan – to operationalise the strategy incl ‘market GWPSA’
    • Relevant GWPSA 5 year work programme (goals 1 and 2 focus)
    • Enabling thrusts on Fundraising and Partnership & Institutional development - also knowledge management, capacity development , OM
  • Fundraising strategy
    • Funding history –understand trends
    • Donor mapping & prioritisation – familiar and new - not the usual for GWPSA – consolidate, rekindle, build new relations
    • Alternative fundraising opportunities (bidding? Investment? Contributions –incl in-kind)
    • Institutional arrangements - GWPSA structures (Chair/ Sec/SC/RTEC /CWPs/Strategic allies etc) and roles / mechanisms
    • Developing & implementing a resource mobilisation plan
  • Conclusions – key messages
    • Take nothing for granted
    • Much effort into relationship building – strategic allies and donors and Partners
    • Capacity, focus and role – importance of ‘implementable strategy’ towards - all 4 goals together – package as ‘GWP value-added pgm’ with Partners, Strategic allies, Donors and Boundary actors (need a fundraising strategy – practical)
    • Meaningful delivery - make a difference to the world out there (beyond our areas of influence?)
    • Need to try new ways of raising resources – can only learn by doing!
    • Thank You
