Research feeds into planning in the Limpopo River Basin

Posted: 2010-11-30

Dedication to consultation and communication paid off in 2010 as policy makers established and consolidated a relationship with researchers in the Challenge Programme on Water and Food (CPWF) in the Limpopo River Basin.

Previously, research carried out in the Basin did not feed in to the Limpopo Basin Commission (LIMCOM). This has changed. The CWPF team has been invited to participate officially in LIMCOM meetings and feed research results into development planning – a big step forward. LIMCOM is now an advocate for collaborative research and is calling for other official Limpopo Basin projects to team up under Commission leadership.

This is just one example of how GWP Southern Africa, working as a knowledge broker in the CPWF in the Limpopo Basin since 2008, has helped direct the research agenda to strategic policy and decision making processes.
