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).

This web-based platform has been developed to encourage knowledge-sharing and networking amongst the ICP’s. 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.

The ocean is the heart of our planet. Like your heart pumping blood to every part of your body, the ocean connects people across the Earth, no matter where we live. The ocean regulates the climate, feeds millions of people every year, produces oxygen, is the home to an incredible array of wildlife, provides us with important medicines, and so much more! In order to ensure the health and safety of our communities and future generations, it’s imperative that we take the responsibility to care for the ocean as it cares for us.
