Transboundary Water Management in Southern Africa [GB-GOV-1-300230]

Department for International Development

The project will support countries in Southern Africa to manage their shared water resources. It will do this by designing and building water infrastructure such as irrigation schemes, water supply systems and water storage schemes. This will help poor and vulnerable people gain access to clean and safe water, produce a predictable agricultural yield and store water for when it is needed during the dry months of the year. The programme will also help countries to communicate hydrological data between themselves – thus providing downstream countries with advance notice of floods and enabling countries to optimise how much water is stored in each country to ensure each has enough to meet their basic requirements.
