The programme “Improving water management and governance in African countries through supporting the development and implementation of IWRM Plans”—co-funded by the EU and UNEP—is assisting seven countries to design their IWRM roadmaps and plans. In 2007, Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia and Togo developed roadmaps, which collate available information and guide stakeholders on how to formulate national plans. In 2008, the programme helped these countries to implement their roadmaps, while assisting four other countries to develop roadmaps (Guinea, Sierra Leone, Bissau Guinea and The Gambia). This work is a joint effort among the UNEP, DHI Water and Environment, the Economic Community of West African States and GWP-WA. The Country Water Partnerships (CWPs) are key actors where they exist and actions are being taken to help countries without CWPs to set them up.
