Description This project seeks to provide a strong base for the Africa Land and Water Initiative in the contexts of the respective countries' development programs. The objectives of this project are to: Develop a credible monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system to track performance and impacts in the 5 intervention areas; Compile and disseminate Best Management Practices (including policies) in community-based integrated land and water management at the 5 sites; Formulate guidelines to incrementally manage basin/sub-basin issues in the selected sites; Compile and synthesize natural resource management data and develop diagnostic principles of basin/sub-basin management in the selected sites; Develop mechanisms for effective stakeholder participation in integrated land and water management in the targeted areas; Training and awareness building (capacity building) at basin/watershed, country, and community levels in the targeted areas; Develop mechanisms for communication, partnerships and operational networking within and between the selected sites; Resource mobilization from donors, governments and private sector for further program implementation (expansion phase) for the 5 sites; Catalyze "start-up" institutional strengthening and capacity building activities to support community-driven decentralized and programmatic land and water management in the intervention areas.
Implementation StatusA supervision mission was conducted on June 7-21, 2004.The project is implemented as an operation research activity in pilot sites across Africa (3 at this time) with as main objectives: the identification and demonstration of efficient, replicable and adaptable operational approaches and models of integrated land and water management within watersheds and river basins, and the strengthening of the capacity of rural communities and institutions to implement such approaches and models. The purpose of the mission was to launch the pilot project implementation, by agreeing with the government on the project objectives and expected results, on a work program and milestones for the year 2004.
