  • 3. Programme Alignment • Aligned to Regional Strategic Plan on IWRM (RSAP III), the Climate Change Strategy for the Water Sector (CCAWS) • Developing the Limpopo Basin IWRM plan • Also aligned to:  Resilience in the Limpopo Basin Program (RESILIM)  Limpopo Monograph Study (including studies on development scenarios)
  • 4. WACDEP Moz & Zim (Pilot countries) Bots & RSA (Need to link to basin level) Limpopo River Commission Development of the IWRM Strategy (Limpopo Monograph Study, Implementation of IWRM Plan (2010- 15) RESILIM (Integrating CC& Biodiversity into WRM) Southern African Development Community (SADC) Regional Water Policy, Regional Water Strategy, RSAP III, CCAWS Linkages with regional processes

  • 9. Progress  The findings of the two studies will also be used to inform the development of Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in countries:  Botswana – development of the Climate Change Adaptation Policy  Zimbabwe – development of the CC Adaptation & Response Strategy  Used to inform the development & implementation of the IWRM plans for the Limpopo and Orange – Senqu River Basins
