  2. 2. Finding the flow in fragile contexts: IWRM in Mali Fragility – what is it? • Multi-dimensional concept, with universal challenges. • Limited capacity to meet basic needs of the population. • Vicious cycle: fragility leaves most water- challenges unaddressed, exacerbating the issues and the need for them to be met.
  3. 3. Finding the flow in fragile contexts: IWRM in Mali World Waternet’s integrated approach in Mali • FOCUS DJI DON: upscaling wastewater treatment and professionalizing operations in Mali by providing support, creating opportunities and exchanging of knowledge and experience. • FOCUS SOMAGEP: improved access to drinking water in Mali. • BLUE DEAL (2030): Goal is to help 20 million people in 40 catchment areas around the world gain access to clean, sufficient and safe water. • WaterWorX (2030): Increasing drinking water access to 10 million people by 2030.
  4. 4. Finding the flow in fragile contexts: IWRM in Mali Putting the practice into action: a question of balance? • Long term commitment vs. short- term needs. • Unequal burden, different working realities.
  5. 5. In closing…Dilemma’s and points to make • Pragmatism trumps checklists of actions in IWRM. • Approaches to water (management) will change over time, challenge is to contribute to the development of institutions and infrastructure that can adapt. • Systemic challenges: complexities of political changes, capacity to absorb funds, security.
