With 90 percent of Africa’s water falling within transboundary river basin catchments, water resources management and development must be a collaborative endeavor. The heart of CIWA’s work is convening countries with the goal of cooperating more effectively and with less friction on projects and infrastructure whose impact crosses borders. CIWA strives to foster cooperation, protect biodiversity, help countries beset by conflict and fragility, and spur climate resilience. It achieves this by advancing technical assistance and projects framed around its three pillars: information—to understand risks, make better decisions, and monitor compliance; institutions—to build trust, coordinate planning, and manage shared resources; and investments—to manage watersheds, develop groundwater, and build storage.
