Transboundary Water Management and poverty: an emerging theme
To date there is no systematic way of planning or capturing the poverty impacts of Transboundary Water Management. SIWI has started a project that will develop such a methodology. The methodology will be tested in in the Orange-Senqu River basin, refined and then shared for wider use by other basin organizations and the international development community. Capacity development on assessing the impact of TWM on poverty will then follow. Collaboration is sought from basin organizations responsible for transboundary watercourses, governments, development agencies as well as think tanks in the areas of poverty reduction and TWM.
