CIWA Learning Notes Series: Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in Nile Basin

This Learning Note focuses on capturing lessons learned and recommendations from CIWA’s support to NBI’s gender equality work from 2012 through 2020. This support was provided primarily through the Nile River Basin Support Program and the complementary project, Nile Cooperation for Results. Since support to the NBI operated at both the project and institutional levels, this Note considers lessons learned from past promotion of gender equality and acknowledges the practical realities of sustaining financial and technical contributions to address gender inequalities in a transformative way.

Invisible Bonds: Transboundary Resilience in Horn of Africa

The document presents an overview of the findings of a stocktaking exercise conducted among selected regional resilience initiatives and Advisory Services and Analytics (ASAs), supported by the World Bank in the HoA.

CIWA Learning Notes Series: Ensuring GESI is Considered at the Project Concept Phase

The CIWA Learning Notes form part of CIWA’s commitment to promoting the adoption of a transformative approach to GESI by recognizing the need to undertake multiple interventions across many sectors and levels to tackle the deep-seated gender inequalities and shifting gender relationships within the transboundary water context in Africa at both the project and institutional level.

CIWA ANNIVERSARY REPORT, IN FRENCH!

For 10 years, CIWA has fostered cooperation over transboundary waters, improved water resources management, protected biodiversity, helped countries beset by conflict and fragility, and spurred climate resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa.

2021 CIWA ANNUAL REPORT (FRENCH VERSION)

Amid the global pandemic, CIWA’s work to ensure water access to sustain lives, increase peace and prosperity, and improve resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa is more important than ever.

Water Cooperation in the Horn of Africa: Addressing Drivers of Conflict and Strengthening Resilience

This joint SIPRI–CIWA report aims to help to fill this research gap by exploring the role of local-level cooperative initiatives in improving water resource challenges in the Horn of Africa. The report draws on three illustrative case studies of transboundary basins in cross-border regions: the Sio–Malaba–Malakishi Basin; the Dawa River and Aquifer; and the Bahr el Ghazal Basin and the Baggara Basin Aquifer. In doing so, it provides lessons learned from existing cooperative initiatives.

World Bank Engagement in Transboundary Waters in West Africa: Retrospective and Lessons Learned

This paper looks at the World Bank’s engagement in transboundary waters in West Africa (in particular Senegal basin, Niger basin, Volta basin, and Lake Chad basin) over the past twenty years and derives lessons that can inform future engagement in the region and the sector.

Drought Resilience Profile, SADC Region

This Drought Resilience Profile for the SADC region provides a snapshot of the drought situation in each country, as evaluated through SADRI’s organizing approach, which is predicated upon the integrated drought risk management framework: 1) monitoring and early warning systems; 2) vulnerability and impact assessment; and 3) mitigation, preparedness, and response. This Profile and the 16 other ones dedicated to Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles, Malawi, the Comores, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, DRC, Angola, Botswana, South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia and Eswatini are meant to establish a baseline and to serve as a conversation starter for where and how to move from reactive to proactive drought management.

Strengthening Regional Water Security for Greater Resilience in the G5 Sahel

The World Bank’s historical engagement in transboundary water in West Africa is at a turning point, at a time when the G5 Sahel region faces unprecedented challenges. Therefore, it is time for the World Bank to broaden its water sector approach in the G5 Sahel and shift its focus to establishing a regional water security framework. This report also serve as a basis for deepening the dialogue with counterparts in the next fiscal year.

The Nile Story: 15 years of Nile Cooperation–Making an Impact

The Nile Story is one of the immense challenges and remarkable achievements for the economic development of the region. It begins in 1999, when the ministers in charge of water affairs in the Nile countries agreed to form the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Between 2003 and 2015, the Nile Basin Trust Fund (NBTF) supported and coordinated cooperative work in the region, which has been delivered mainly through the NBI. This book, commissioned by the World Bank on the closure of the NBTF, captures some insights to this 15 year story, the role of the NBI, and how its many achievements have been made along the way.
