  • Portfolio of activities – a flagship model of engagement for GWP -- that pro-actively joins up the Network through the Knowledge Chain (i.e. identifying / distilling / sharing / evolving Knowledge on TB water security) – TEC; GWPO; NWOfficers; Regional and Country Partnerships, and Knowledge Partners; and that consolidates current activities on TB right across the networkDevelopment of the GWP Operational Strategy on TB:Concept paper on TB (which includes joining up with RWPs and key Knowledge partners (providing conceptual framework for the work). Engagement with RWPs to provide key inputs for Operational Strategy on TB by providing inputs on the following key issues: (i) what is GWP’s comparative advantage in this arena? (providing a unified but locally informed consolidated statement on justification for this work; (ii) mapping the current activities and partners on TB at the local/regional level; (iii) providing current examples of how local / regional practice contributes to the TB mission statement (from the GWP strategy) Engagement with key Knowledge partners – Chatham House; GEF; SIWI; Dundee; etc. This is a pilot methodology for a more holistic engagement across GWP, based upon the Knowledge Chain >> Discovering / Developing/Devising/Delivering/Disseminating Knowledge together in ways that are meaningful to our constituency, but also contributing to global knowledge and best practice.

    6. Social Equity & IWRM Brings greater clarity to the concept of “social equity” in the context of water Provides a framework for considering the multiple dimensions of equity in water resources development and management
    7. Equity – Some Key Messages Social equity in water management is primarily about people, not water. It is not enough to consider only policies and processes within the water sector, but also the combined effects of these with other policies in other sectors and national development and economic policies. Although tradeoffs are sometimes required between the goals of social equity and economic efficiency, well designed policies that look at benefits and costs holistically can often advance both goals.
    8. Operational methodology RWP RTAC1. Concept Note Knowledge Publication CWP partners proposal 2. Perspectives paper Template 3. Regional case studies, feedback and validation 4. Background paper
    9. Integrated Urban Water Management  Perspectives Paper published (Launched during Stockholm Water Week 2011)Components of IUWM Alignment of water subsectors within cities & beyond Water conservation & Efficiency efforts Water sensitive planning & design Stormwater & wastewater source control, pollution prevention, and flow & quality management Optimum mix of ecological solutions & infrastructure Use of non –structural tools (education, pricing, regulations..)
    10. Climate Change, Water & Food Security Joint workshop with IWMI on Climate Change, Food and Water Security in South Asia held 24-25 February 2011 Workshop on Regional Approaches to Food and Water Security in the Face of Climate Challenges in Southern & Eastern Africa held 23‐24 May 2011
    11. South Asia workshop Brought together 75 policy makers, practitioners and researchers from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the international community Outcomes:  Planning Commissions of India and Pakistan resolved to develop a collaborative work plan & seek financial support to set it in motion  Synthesis available at www.gwp.org Follow-up: Support the establishment of a platform on integrated drought and flood monitoring and forecasting building on existing country expertise and encouraging regional cooperation

    13. Transboundary CooperationA diversified portfolio of activities: Set-up of GWP/ Dundee Knowledge Chain Scholarship Programme on International Water Law – proposed 30 scholarships awarded annually over 5 years = 150 capacity enhanced participants across the GWP network First round of 28 students (out of 87 applicants) accepted & trained
