Posted: 2012-11-15

Collaboration among West African countries has led to the development of IWRM action plans in Togo, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire, and IWRM roadmaps in Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone. 

Collaboration among West African countries has led to the development of IWRM action plans in Togo, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire, and IWRM roadmaps in Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone. Country Water Partnerships were set up in Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Gambia, and a feasibility study has started in Sierra Leone. Assessment studies of Country Water Partnerships in Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Côte d'Ivoire and Guinea were completed and proposals have identified ways of strengthening the partnerships.

All this is the result of a four-year UNEP/EU project supporting the development and implementation of IWRM plans to improve water management and governance that finished in 2012. GWP West Africa was mainly responsible for supplying the technical expertise needed to set up Country Water Partnerships, mobilise stakeholders in the IWRM process, and build their capacity. The project aimed to add value to processes improving national water governance and management and to focus on environmental issues.
