    • Towards Water Security and Climate Resilience in Burundi and Rwanda Bugesera Trans boundary Project in Kagera River Basin for Rwanda and Burundi” GWP Water and Climate Programme Work Package 5 – Demonstration Projects
    • Kagera Basin- LVBC/EAC Bugesera catchment demonstration – focus on Lake Cyohoha Implementation of WACDEP in Bugesera
    • Proposed area for the project – Lake Cyohoha Sub-Catchment
    • Entry points for local interventions in Bugesera The interventions are expected to: • have positive social and economic impacts on the communities in both countries, • enhance their adaptive capacity and contribute to building resilience to climate change impacts • enable communities to jointly collaborate while managing the shared transboundary water and other natural resources
    • Entry points for local interventions in Bugesera • The Lake Cyohoha Catchment has been identified by both countries as a hotspots in various development plans and processes (including NAPAs and National Climate Communication Reports) • Identified as hotspot in the Kagera Basin Investment Strategy • Need to respond to unsustainable projects on- going in the sub-catchment supporting Busoni, Bugabira (in Burundi) and Bugesera District (Rwanda’s)
    • ”Innovation” in the Bugesera Demonstration Project • Putting a climate and gender lens in identification of interventions in Lake Cyohoha sub-catchment • Working with communities from Burundi and Rwanda on a shared basin to build adaptive capacity and reduce vulnerabilities • Contribute to harmonisation and sharing of experiences in natural resource management across borders Transboundary Water Management at a local level
    • Progress in implementation of WACDEP in Bugesera Consultations with local level stakeholders in Bugesera (project launching July 2012) Understanding Bugesera Catchment problems through community participatory approach
    • Progress in implementation of WACDEP in Bugesera Situational analysis (considering climatic and non-climatic drivers) in Lake Cyohoha Catchment carried out by a joint team of experts from Burundi & Rwanda (Nov-Dec 2012) Encroaching wetlands for agriculture and grazing. Water supply issues
    • Progress in implementation of WACDEP in Bugesera Stakeholders from Bu & Rw reviewed and endorsed the findings of the situational analysis (Dec 2012.)
    • Progress in implementation of WACDEP in Bugesera • Areas for quick actions assessed during Planning Meeting for Activities around the Lake Cyohoha in Kirundo (July 2013) • Participatory prioritization of interventions – that contribute to building adaptive capacity and reducing vulnerabilities
    • Prioritised interventions selected in Bugesera • Rainwater harvesting and water storage facilities; • Protection of buffer zones along the shorelines of Lake Cyohoha;. • Building of terraces – to manage soil erosion (thus siltation of water resources)
    • Prioritised interventions selected in Bugesera • Promoting adoption of biogas, solar energy and improved cook stoves; • Building capacities of the beneficiaries on water security and climate resilience. • Women groups involvement and Youth training and involvement
    • Results so far from the implemented activites • Ownership of the program by local leaders and stakeholders expressed • Major problems/ challenges/issues, possible adaptation actions and sites for action identified for Lake Cyohoha sub-catchment • Detailed 2013-2014 action plan that include a list of activities, specific locations within the catchment area, timeframe, responsible lead institutions and collaborators and mechanisms for implementation.
    • Indicators for Work Package 5 in Bugasera • Number of beneficiaries supported in demonstration projects on water security and climate resilience undertaken • Number of documents produced outlining the lessons from GWP demonstration projects and a plan for replicating solutions
    • Thank You for your Attention !!
