Regional and transboundary cooperation WP1 GWPSA case study michael ramaano_28 aug

  1. 1. Michael Ramaano 28 August 2013 Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Sweden WACDEP SOUTHERN AFRICA
  2. 2. Programme Overview • WACDEP in Southern Africa is being implemented in the Limpopo River Basin (Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa & Zimbabwe) • In-depth implementation/ piloting done in Mozambique and Zimbabwe • Being financed through two streams: WACDEP funding: € 1.5 million • Locally raised funding through project on Mainstreaming climate change into water sector: € 1.3M • Locally raised funding covers the whole SADC region thus the 14 countries of the region.
  3. 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. 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
  5. 5. Work Package 1: Objective :To support SADC and LIMCOM, to advance regional cooperation in climate change adaptation in shared water courses for regional and economic development Key outputs: - Investment options for enhancing Water Security and Climate Resilience within SADC identified and integrated into CCAS, policies and IWRM plans - A tool on assessing the economic impacts of climate change on the LRB i.e. cost of inaction Indicator: At least 1 regional and 1 river basin institutions supported to develop an Investment Options plan and a tool for assessing economic impacts of CC
  6. 6. Progress SADC Investment Options plan Studies on the following currently on-going:  Study on Local Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Practices (LIKSP) and how they contribute to enhancing climate resilience in the SADC region: to provide social arguments.  Country assessments on the implementation of the SADC Regional Water Policy in all 14 SADC Member States: to motivate for policy harmonisation and promote regional cooperation.  Study on Assessing Financing of Water Resources Management and Development in the SADC Region: to provide economic arguments.  Studies will identify gaps, opportunities and recommendations for increased investment in water sector to build resilience  Will be completed by October 2013
  7. 7. Progress SADC Investment Options plan  Investment options plan will then be taken to the SADC stakeholders through a series of advocacy interventions including;  SADC National Water Weeks – promote stakeholder involvement in WM issues in all 14 countries  Dialogues with Parliamentary Forums in all the 14 countries  Inter Ministerial dialogues in the LRB and Orange – Senqu River basin  Training of planners on economic appraisal methods in the two basins and integrating CC into district and national planning
  8. 8. Progress Tool for assessing the economic impacts of climate change on the LRB i.e. cost of inaction  Terms of Reference for the study have been developed starting with Botswana.  Consultation with other riparian states at an advanced stage and ToR will be finalized by September 2013.  Consultation with LIMCOM also at an advanced stage.  Studies will be conducted in all 4 riparian member states starting in October / November 2013  Based on the findings of the two deliverables, two proposals will be developed for the Limpopo and Orange – Senqu river basins
  9. 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
