In recent years, GWP Southern Africa has had to explore different ways of leveraging funds, and in 2012 was invited by a US firm to partner with them on a USAID proposal for the Limpopo basin. GWP Southern Africa agreed to help by putting together the best regional team to serve the Limpopo Watercourse Commission and the Southern African Development Community in this project.
The bid was awarded to the US firm and its regional partners, including GWP Southern Africa. GWP Southern Africa will ensure that all stakeholders are involved and that the project is aligned with existing basin and regional programmes. It will provide technical support to ensure an integrated approach – across sectors and levels.
