TDA/SAP Methodology Training Course Module 3 Section 9

  1. 1. IW:LEARN TDA/SAP Training Course Module 3: Developing the SAP
  2. 2. Section 9: Implementation Strategies
  3. 3. + Where are we? Implementing strategies Setting strategic actions Drafting the SAP National and Regional consultation
  4. 4. + In this Section you will learn about….  What are the key integration and implementation strategies?  Examples of different implementation strategies
  5. 5. + Why? We need to ensure the SAP is fully integrated into national development plans and vice versa Consequently, the SAP development process will require direct engagement with national development planning processes in each country
  6. 6. + What are the key integration and implementation strategies?  There is no single blueprint for the integration of the SAP into national and regional development planning processes  A number of approaches have been used over the last decade and tend to reflect the economic, political, institutional and regulatory frameworks of the countries where the integration is being carried out  Often, the SAP will use more than one approach to ensure that the it is fully integrated with both national and regional processes
  7. 7. + Embedding into existing National Action Plans e.g. Lake Victoria Basin SAP To ensure sustainability of SAP activities, it may be necessary to mainstream them into national priorities and relevant regional initiatives. Mainstreaming will pave the way for respective institutions to eventually capture SAP activities in their annual budgets, especially for purposes of leveraging external funding.
  8. 8. + Strategic partnerships with other regional initiatives e.g. Mekong River Basin SAP In order to reduce the replication of effort; waste of resources (financial, time and knowledge); and conflict between approaches, the SAP process can fully collaborate and integrate with other strategic partnerships and national and regional initiatives. Examples could include engaging and collaborating with on-going national IWRM Plans, RBM Plans or ICZM Plans, amongst others.
  9. 9. + Sub-regional and Bi-lateral Agreements e.g. South China Sea SAP Countries could be encouraged to enter into sub-regional and bi-lateral agreements to address issues relating to the implementation of the SAP. A Memorandum of Understanding signed by all participating countries in the SAP can form the umbrella under which these sub- regional and bilateral agreements are negotiated and implemented.
  10. 10. + Regional Coordination Networks e.g. Lake Chad Basin SAP Often, regional Commissions are created, strengthened or revised as part of the SAP process and are given the responsibility for promoting and coordinating the implementation of priority actions that the participating countries have defined in the SAP.
  11. 11. + National Action Plans (NAPs) e.g. Caspian Sea SAP The SAP can be supported to a large extent by national interventions contained in specific water system-based NAPs developed during the SAP process. Whilst the NAPs feed into the SAP, they are also cohesive, independent documents detailing national objectives, targets and interventions to be achieved. Without commitment to implement the national actions, the regional interventions of the SAP would have no foundation and their implementation would be undermined.
