African Development Bank highlighted success of IWRM planning in Burundi

Posted: 2011-12-30

The Africa Water Facility review mission to Burundi has concluded that the IWRM planning process has achieved its purpose and has recommended financial support to implement the plan. The mission also decided to use its experience in Burundi as a building block for other countries in Eastern Africa and transboundary water management.

The Plan d'Actions stratégiques pour la Gestion Intégrée des Ressources en Eau (PAGIRE), the product of a homegrown consultative and participatory process, served an important need in the sustainable management of the nation's water resources. Though the project objective – the formulation of an IWRM plan – was probably too ambitious and did not match the resources and capacities available, it was achieved due to the great commitment of the government that was determined to rebuild the country following protracted civil conflict.
