Cooperation in International Waters (CIWA)
(as of September 2011)
Acknowledging the importance of regional integration for water resources development and management, a multi-donor trust fund was established by various development partners to support “Cooperation in International Waters” (CIWA). CIWA has been designed specifically to support riparian governments and other stakeholders with the complexities of building cooperation and undertaking collaborative or joint investments in shared river basins. The development objective of the CIWA-multi-donor trust fund is to strengthen cooperative management and development of international waters in Africa to facilitate sustainable climate resilient growth. The activities of CIWA are complementary to the existing African water programs, focusing specifically on transboundary cooperation. Program areas are currently under formulation and will support Regional Economic Communities, River Basin Organisations, riparian countries and other stakeholders.
