Session Governance - Building an institutional rwh environment - a schoemaker rain foundation

  1. 1. <ul><li>Building an institutional rainwater harvesting framework; the RAIN model and its challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Ard Schoemaker, RAIN Foundation , the Netherlands, </li></ul><ul><li>International Symposium on Rural Water Services, 14-4-2010, Kampala </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Outline : </li></ul><ul><li>The RAIN Foundation in short </li></ul><ul><li>Where does rainwater harvesting stand today? </li></ul><ul><li>Main topic : an enabling environment for upscaling (RWH) </li></ul><ul><li>Required capacities on all levels </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions / challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Dialogue with floor </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>1. The RAIN Foundation in short </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation oriented network </li></ul><ul><li>Access to water, decentralised </li></ul><ul><li>Build capacities on multiple levels </li></ul><ul><li>International network </li></ul><ul><li>R&D, mutual learning, M&E </li></ul>
  4. 4. 2. Brief overview: where does rainwater harvesting stand today? ” Steps to be taken” RWH practiced all over, successful technologies & results Overcome scattered RWH projects Structural approach to upscale and capacity building Communicate and multiply upscaling success stories Many lessons learned and best practices developed Provide structural knowledge sharing and capacity development & cost reduction More and more organisations / institutions involved Construct institutional environment for impl/maint/manag (such as for “traditional” drinking water systems) ” Progress”
  5. 5. Awareness on potential and need to integrate RWH into policies increased (o.a. due to climate change) Structurally integrate RWH into policies and government management plans. Technical socio-organisational capacities available on specific levels Structural building of capacities on all required levels , (univ. governments, ..) Successful water provision on local levels Integrate RWH in IWRM, take climate change into account 2. Where does rainwater harvesting stand today? ” Steps to be taken” ” Progress”
  6. 6. 3. An enabling environment for upscaling RWH (theoretical framework) Technology: low cost, simple, manageable, sustainable Implementation programmes / suppliers Institutional environment ; organisations that can develop , policies, technologies, programmes Funding & Financial mechanisms Knowledge & capacities: on different levels RWH embedded in policies and water management plans
  7. 7. Implementing partners Govern-ment Rainwater Harvesting Capacity Centre Users Providers / chain Knowledge institutes / universities International levels, policies, funds, programmes MFI’s / banks ODA’s RAIN Enabling environment (on national level) to ensure sustainability and continuity of RWH on country level National multi stakeholder group 3. An enabling environment for upscaling RWH (practical implementation) Underestimated need to develop capacities of the overall sector
  8. 8. Financing Institutions People living in rural and unserved areas Government Central Coordination & Monitoring Body District and Local implementing organisations Knowledge & Research Institutes District and Local RWH service centres 3. An institutional RWH framework for upscaling RWH
  9. 9. 7 implementing partners 6 implementing partners 10 implementing partners 6 implementing partners 5 implementing partners People living in areas with no or very limited access to water Rainwater Harvesting Capacity Centre RHCC RHCC Burkina Faso Mali Senegal Ethiopia Nepal RHCC RHCC 3. An institutional RWH framework for upscaling RWH
  10. 10. 4. Required capacities for an institutional RWH framework - Levels User level Construction level, engineers, masons, technicians… Socio-organisational level NGO / local government level Supplier level Knowledge centres / universities Governmental levels “ FIETS” sustainability
  11. 11. User level Construction level, engineers, masons, technicians… Socio-organisational level NGO / local government level <ul><li>Management capacities in widest sense, </li></ul><ul><li>O&M and repair capacities </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity to manage loans (financial mechanisms) </li></ul><ul><li>Adequate designs, technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Experience, knowledge of local context, </li></ul><ul><li>Access to (updated) information </li></ul><ul><li>Organisation builders, networks, partners </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion & awareness, </li></ul><ul><li>Extension & information </li></ul><ul><li>Needs based & participatory approaches </li></ul><ul><li>Inclusion of women / gender approach / right to water </li></ul><ul><li>Embedded in development plans </li></ul><ul><li>Address water quality </li></ul>4. Required capacities for an institutional RWH framework - capacities
  12. 12. Supplier level Knowledge centres / universities Governmental levels <ul><li>Knowledge on proper materials, </li></ul><ul><li>Stock , variety of systems, </li></ul><ul><li>Address water quality, </li></ul><ul><li>Updated information </li></ul><ul><li>Education, curriculum development </li></ul><ul><li>Research and (technology) development </li></ul><ul><li>Cost reduction </li></ul><ul><li>Advice </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities to integrate RWH into policies, operational plans/projects </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities to control and ensure water quality </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities to fit RWH into development plans </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities to link all actors </li></ul><ul><li>Financial mechanisms </li></ul>4. Required capacities for an institutional RWH framework
  13. 13. 5. Conclusions - challenges <ul><li>There is a real need for collaboration and a mutually learning, institutional environment, to enable upscaling and sustainability. </li></ul><ul><li>Post construction support functions should be filled in </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities on all levels should be adequate and kept updated, best practices continuously exchanged. </li></ul><ul><li>Governments could/should be(come) a key player to support this. </li></ul>
  14. 14. 6. Dialogue with you <ul><li>What is your opinion on the need of / value for such an enabling environment? - Which other models exist, or work? </li></ul><ul><li>How to address the poorest layers, where no markets exists, LG are often absent? Does the “ background paper framework” still stands? </li></ul><ul><li>How to embed RWH in policies (on a large scale)? </li></ul><ul><li>… . </li></ul>Thank you www.rainfoundation.org
