SADC Water Sector ICP Collaboration Portal

The SADC Water Sector, with the assistance of Germany through GIZ, has set in motion a confluence of information flow, to support the coordination of present and future joint water projects and initiatives and efforts to create streamlined, transparent communication and cooperation between SADC member states and their 'International Cooperating Partners' (ICPs).

It is hoped that channeling collective information into a common pool of knowledge and open dialogue will open the flood gates to a future of collaboration and confluence for the SADC region.
