1 Exploring linkages and cooperation between FETWater and Masibambane III Outline FETWATER Programme Overview Masibambane III Programme …a FETwater perspective Overview of FETwater II Programme Masibambane WR cluster challenges Linkages and co-operation opportunities Presentation to MCC – 22May 2009 Alvin Lagardien: FETWater Steering Committee Member

2 FETWater Programme ( Framework Programme for Research, Education and Training in Water) Funded by DWAF and Flemish UNESCO Science trust (Phase I: ;Phase II: ; Phase III currently being explored) Supports training and capacity building networks related to integrated water resource management (IWRM) in the water sector. Provides institutional and financial support to encourage the creation of training networks as a method for effective co- operation between universities, research institutions, and the public and private sectors.

Emerging clarity in water sector landscape.. institutional realignment (CMA, WUA, Water utilities) … process requires additional capacity FETWater knowledge networks have done significant groundwork…. can strengthen Masibambane structures and can be pivotal in appropriate knowledge transfer and capacity building initiatives

12 Key challenges identified by Masibambane Coordinating Committee (MCC- Oct 2008) for Water Resource Management cluster Consolidation of the Water Resource / Water Services Interface Accelerate review of Water sector Leadership Group to incorporate water resources aspects, broad but high level sector participation, and alignment with other structures Further opportunities for WS/WR integration of structures should be explored in each province. Developing an approach to Water for Growth and Development. Providing Support to CMAs & developing M&E systems Existing FETWater networks are well placed to contribute positively to meeting the challenges

13 1. Review and alignment of Masibambane WR strategies and support structures Facilitate a Joint FETWater/ Masibambane workshop to review WR landscape and frame an aligned and coherent strategy for the support priorities identified. Based on the outcomes the workshops, projects to address the support priorities can be identified and consolidated into a WMI Strategic Support Business Plan for presentation to MCC for approval. FETwater network capacity has potential to provide impetus to Masibambane in the following areas

14 2. Providing support to WMIs through participation regional structures thereby consolidating the WR/WS interface and capacity building support Strengthen regional sub structures as required to give effect to WMI Strategic Support BP outlined above. Participation of network partners can ensure that appropriate knowledge sharing and skills development capacity can be developed in the region. In the context of this regional synergy on projects coherent framework for IWRM Capacity Building and Training can be developed and implemented FETwater network capacity has potential to provide impetus to Masibambane in the following areas

15 Discussion Comments and Questions Suggestions for the way forward. Thank You
