Capacity building for integrated river basin management for higher education institutes in Ethiopia

Duration : November 1, 2009 - June 30, 2012

The water sector in Ethiopia is undergoing rapid change. New institutional arrangements are being developed and of particular note is the integrated management of water and environmental resources through River Basin Organisations. The programme proposed here aims to strengthen the capacity required to implement such a process. Through the programme the Consortium intends to develop partnership between the academic institutions and the water sector. Hence, it is expected that information and knowledge can be delivered not only for fostering the necessary capacity for water sector reform, but also to trigger the innovation required in the process of the establishment of new institutional arrangements.
