  • Basin population is over 14 million within four countries. Nearly 25% of South Africa’s population &amp; over 60% of Botswana’s live in the basin. Major cities within/adjacent to the Basin include Johannesburg-Pretoria, Gaborone and Bulawayo. Where is the water (availability)? How is the water used (productivity)? Institutional factors affecting access and use? Observable links between water, agriculture and livelihoods? Feasible intervention packages Generating and sharing insights with stakeholders
  • The LBFP is identifying those interventions with the greatest potential for improving water availability, access &amp; productivity to reduce poverty in the rural population. In order to do this, we 1. Collect approaches being used, organize them by theme. 2. Develop data base of interventions to better understand potential 3. Technical sift of interventions to assess appropriateness of different technologies in different locations (water requirements, poverty reduction, risk, etc). 4. Stakeholder consultations: ground truthing what might work under which conditions for which audiences-- 5. Compile list of appropriate strategic intervention packages

    1. 1. Challenge Programme on Water & Food in the Limpopo basin Towards Research-Policy linkages & Outcomes Ruth Beukman Regional Coordinator GWPSA Dr Amy Sullivan Project Manager – FANRPAN CP 2010 - Stockholm
    2. 2. Overview <ul><li>A brief introduction of the CPWF (2004-2009) </li></ul><ul><li>Limpopo basin and Phase 1 research </li></ul><ul><li>Gaps & Issues - phase 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Limpopo basin focal project – ‘synthesis’ </li></ul><ul><li>The 2 regional networks - roles & actions (GWPSA & FANRPAN) </li></ul><ul><li>Results & lessons (WP4 institutions, 5 interventions & overall) </li></ul><ul><li>Informing phase 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion – for policy and impact…? </li></ul>
    3. 3. Introduction - CPWF <ul><li>The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) is a research‐for‐development program </li></ul><ul><li>that works to increase the productivity of water for food and livelihoods (in a manner that is environmentally sustainable, socially acceptable, and alleviates poverty for all disadvantaged groups). </li></ul>
    4. 5. Basin Overview <ul><li>Basin population is over 14 million within four countries. </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly 25% of South Africa’s population & over 60% of Botswana’s live in the basin. </li></ul><ul><li>Major cities within/adjacent to the Basin include Johannesburg-Pretoria, Gaborone and Bulawayo. </li></ul>

Wetlands, Social Welfare & Environmental Security IWMI 36. Improved Livelihoods through Dam Management-IWMI 46. Small Multi-Purpose Reservoir Ensemble Planning -IWMI 47. African Models of Trans-boundary Governance -IWMI 53. Food and Water Security under Global Change-IFRPI 66. Water Rights in Informal Economies-IWMI CPWF Phase 1 projects Research in the Limpopo basin - before PROJECTS REMAINED ON THE SHELVES OF RESEARCHERS
    6. 7. Gaps and issues in phase 1 <ul><li>Rich source of information but isolated and no consideration for taking research findings further </li></ul><ul><li>Query levels of impact – if any? </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of involvement of stakeholders in the region – especially policymakers at different levels and practitioners (for influence and uptake, local -regional) </li></ul><ul><li>Projects not integrated or inter disciplinary </li></ul>
    7. 8. Limpopo Focal Project - Research Questions <ul><li>Where is the water (availability)? </li></ul><ul><li>How well is the water used (productivity)? </li></ul><ul><li>Institutional factors affecting access and use? </li></ul><ul><li>Observable links between water, agriculture and livelihoods? </li></ul><ul><li>Feasible intervention packages? </li></ul><ul><li>Generating and sharing insights with stakeholders? </li></ul>
    8. 9. Limpopo Basin Focal Project <ul><li>WP1 Poverty Analysis – Malawi Polytechnic and University of Zimbabwe </li></ul><ul><li>WP2 Water Availability – ARC and University of Botswana </li></ul><ul><li>WP3 Water Productivity – IWMI and UEM </li></ul><ul><li>WP4 Institutional Arrangements – FANRPAN and GWP </li></ul><ul><li>WP5 Options for Intervention – FANRPAN and GWP </li></ul><ul><li>WP6 Knowledge Management - ARC </li></ul>
    9. 10. Roles, Actions – 2 regional networks <ul><li>FANRPAN – agricultural regional network and country nodes (11) </li></ul><ul><li>GWPSA – IWRM regional knowledge network with 12 CWPs (note riparians) – multi-stakeholder </li></ul><ul><li>Strength and strategic opportunity – ‘partnering’ & partners </li></ul><ul><li>Stakeholders engaged in highlighting activities, needs & challenges at different levels across the 2 main sectors nationally and at basin and regional policy levels (RBOs/SADC/TWRM) </li></ul><ul><li>s/h wshop - brought farmers, extension officers, district development planners, government officials from water and agric – to determine feasible agric water interventions (GIS overlays to id hotspots - vulnerability - with stakeholders) – match with possible interventions (matrix) </li></ul>
    10. 11. Work Package 5 - Strategic Interventions
    11. 12. Work Package 4 (Institutional) - Results <ul><li>All riparian countries have policies aimed at supporting small-scale farmers to increase their productivity and profits, yet effectiveness of implementation varies considerably - capacity </li></ul><ul><li>Limited inter-ministerial and departmental collaboration for promoting agricultural water management limits cross-cutting integrated policies to support agricultural water management, hinder best arrangements - integration </li></ul><ul><li>LIMCOM’s emergence as an effective RBO significantly enhances the capacity of the basin countries to consider basin vs only national solutions on water for food, livelihoods and reduced poverty (opportunity for benefit-sharing?) </li></ul>
    12. 13. Overall results & Lessons LBFP <ul><li>Facilitated inter-ministerial collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>Policy makers and practitioners identified strategic interventions </li></ul><ul><li>A start to organising/packaging knowledge for dissemination </li></ul><ul><li>Identified relevant institutions and institutional challenges in implementation of interventions </li></ul><ul><li>CPWF management willingness to change allowing very different phase 2 design & level of stakeholder input </li></ul><ul><li>Policy makers at all levels informed the research agenda (content) based on needs & approach (5 projects,parts incl coordination & facilitating uptake at different levels) </li></ul><ul><li>research within a socio-economic and political context esp national and basin development and politics (LIMCOM)! </li></ul><ul><li>Ownership & sustainability </li></ul>
    13. 14. Informing Phase 2 - design <ul><li>Stakeholder workshop to input into Ph2 (local, national, basin) </li></ul><ul><li>Phase II—Fewer projects, better integration, building on insights from Phase I </li></ul><ul><li>Phase II—design a program mindful of on-going activities, context, trends, projects </li></ul><ul><li>Research for development in full partnership mode building on existing networks, institutions </li></ul><ul><li>Aiming to integrate strategies combining policy environment, institutions and technologies </li></ul>
    14. 15. Conclusion – policy & impact? <ul><li>Impact pathways – influence behavioural change </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at internal (researchers) and external stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Then what? Integrating with basin, national and local wrm/agric development, TBWRM, national and basin development plans to improve livelihoods & national soci-economic development. </li></ul>
