    • Global Water Partnership Consulting Partners Meeting 1st of September 2013 Stockholm, Sweden Water, Climate and Development Programme in Africa
    • BACKGROUND
    • GWP in Africa working with AMCOW • In 2007 GWP in Africa signed an MoU with AMCOW • 2008 the Sharma el Sheik Declaration by AU Heads of State • 2009 – GWP and AMCOW meeting in Abidjan. • 2010 – GWP requested by AMCOW EXCO to operationalise WACDEP
    • WACDEP implements commitments in the 2008 Sharm el Sheik Declaration by the AU Heads of State And is central to the delivery of climate related objectives in the AMCOW Triennial WorkPlan
    • WACDEP builds on the lessons learnt in IWRM Planning carried out from 2004 - 2009
    • • WACDEP contributes to the implementation of the GWP Strategy. • Within the GWP Global Climate Change Operational Strategy.
    • Overall objective of WACDEP To support integration of water security and climate resilience in development planning and decision making processes
    • WHAT WILL WACDEP IN AFRICA DELIVER? What will WACDEP deliver?
    • 4 WACDEP COMPONENTS 1. No/low Regret investments in Regional and National development With the following sub-componets: • Contibute to Regional and Transboundary Cooperation Through supporting regional organisations to integrate water security and climate resilience • National developement and sector plans Through supporting national organisations to integrate water security and climate resilience • No/low regrets investments Support organisations to develop investments which integrate water security for climate resilience • Project preparation and financing Support to strengthen preparing projects on water security and climate resilience 2. Demostration local projects: focusing on innovative solutions and water- food-energy nexus 3. Capacity Development and Knowledge Awareness: for water security and climate resilience 4. Partnerships & sustainability
    • WATER CLIMATE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME -AFRICA Water security and climate resilience integrated in Africa's growth and development Investments in regional and National Development Transboundary Cooperaton National Developmentand SectorPlans No/lowRegrets Investments ProjectPreparation andFinancing Innovative Green Solutions Demonstration Projects Knowledge and Capacity Development Capacity Developement Knowledgeand Awareness Partnerships and Sustainability Governanceand Fundrising OUTCOMEOUTPUTSACTIVITIES Enabling activitiesIntegration, investments in Climate resilient growth and development
    • PROGRESS IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF AFRICA What will WACDEP deliver?
    • Supporting Regional and Transboundary Cooperation Strengthening climate resilience in transboundary water resources management Status of Water Management and Climate Change in the Volta Basin Observatory for Water Resources and Related Ecosystems Hydro-socio-economic model for Observatory for the Sahara and Sahel Understanding the Economics of Adaptation to CC for LIMIS and Country Studies Rapid CC Vulnerability and Impact Assessment for CICOS
    • Supporting Regional and Transboundary Cooperation Improving climate issues with regards to water resources Status of Water Management and Climate Change in the Volta Basin Observatory for Water Resources and Related Ecosystems Hydro-socio-economic model for Observatory for the Sahara and Sahel Understanding the Economics of Adaptation to CC for LIMIS and Country Studies Rapid CC Vulnerability and Impact Assessment for CICOS
    • Supporting Regional and Transboundary Cooperation Strengthening Institutional Arrangements Supporting in defining the Outlines and Principles of the VBA Master Plan Supporting the SASS consultation mechanism Developing Investment options for WS&CR in SADC Building Institutional capacity of water security and climate resilience Supporting to improving Kagera Basin Cooperation through the LVBC Hydro-met strategy and optimal network for ECCAS

    • Supporting in strengthening Water Security and Climate Resilience in National Development Supporting the Burkina Faso National Adaptation Planning Process Support the development of the Tunisia Water and Land degradation strategy (to incl. WS&CR) Burundi – Supporting the NAPs process Cameroon integrating WS&CR into the NAP IWRM Plan and NBSP Strengthen WS&CR in the NDP in Ghana Rwanda support the implementation of the Green Growth and CR Strategy Zimbabwe – Supporting the NCCRS Moz developing capacities to integrate WS&CR
    • Supporting in strengthening Water Security and Climate Resilience in National Development Supporting the Burkina Faso National Adaptation Planning Process Support the development of the Tunisia Water and Land degradation strategy (to incl. WS&CR) Burundi – Supporting the NAPs process Cameroon integrating WS&CR into the NAP IWRM Plan and NBSP Strengthen WS&CR in the NDP in Ghana Rwanda support the implementation of the Green Growth and CR Strategy Zimbabwe – Supporting the NCCRS Moz developing capacitates to integrate WS&CR
    • WP 3: No/low regret investments in water security and climate resilience To prioritise no/low regret investments that provide returns under a range of current and future scenarios (socio- economic and climatic)
    • Framework is key to the identification and prioritisation of no/low regret investments
    • Investments will be for: • Infrastructure (both natural and engineered approaches) • Ensuring reliable and timely information to support decision-making • Building institutional capacity to manage water security in Africa WP 3: No/low regret investments in water security and climate resilience
    • • Database on Project Preparation Facilities (PPF) for water management and development • 8 national workshops on project preparation and financing • Pan-African Project Preparation and Investment Conference Project Preparation and Financing
    • Innovative Green Solutions Building adaptive capacity in local water committees in Burkina Faso Supporting groundwater governance to the local level in Tunisia Cameroon integrating WS&CR local agro- forestry management Local integrated flood management in the White Volta Rwanda and Burundi – joint water resources management framework in TWM at the local level Mozambique – rehabilitation of lagoons in the Limpopo Basin and water harvesting projects
    • Innovative Green Solutions Building adaptive capacity in local water committees in Burkina Faso Supporting groundwater governance to the local level in Tunisia Cameroon integrating WS&CR local agro- forestry management Local integrated flood management in the White Volta Rwanda and Burundi – joint water resources management framework in TWM at the local level Mozambique – rehabilitation of lagoons in the Limpopo Basin and water harvesting projects
    • Institutions capacitated in integrating WS&CR in to NDP and sectoral plans  Economic case to high level policy makers on the importance of WS & CR  Climate assessment and climate screening  Prioritisation of investments (Economic analysis of investments using cost benefit analysis, cost effectiveness) assessment Robust decision making in the prioritisation of investments  Financing and investment portfolios for climate resilient development  No/low regrets investments & development planning processes Enabling Actions: – Developing capacities for water security and climate resilience
