WATER CLIMATE AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME - WACDEP
WACDEP is an African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) programme implemented by GWP and Partners in order to realize the climate change related commitments expressed by African Heads of State and Government in the 2008 Sharm el--‐Sheikh Declaration on water and sanitation. The programme is embedded in the AMCOW Work Plan and is supported by a WACDEP Africa Coordination Unit (CU)based in Pretoria in close coordination with the AMCOW secretariat. The WACDEP aims to promote water security as a key element of sustainable development of countries and regions and to contribute to climate change resilience for economic growth and human security. The objectives of the programme are to help the countries to: integrate water security and resilience to climate change in the development planning process; develop partnerships and the capabilities of institutions and stakeholders in reinforcing climate resilience thanks to a better water management; develop funding and no/low regret’investment strategies for water security, and adaptation to climate change.
