DescriptionThe Government of Botswana (GoB) requires assistance to facilitate the development of processes, procedures, methods and options for full integration of water resources management and development options across all sectors. In particular, support is needed to identify and develop water efficiency and conservation options to respond to the problem of increasing water scarcity and the need to balance the allocation and use of water resources among different users and uses. Moreover, Botswana also needs assistance with incorporating specific environmental concerns such as the protection of the integrity of ecosystems, and the increasing problem of groundwater pollution in water resources management. These needs form the basis why Botswana is selected as a demonstration site for the proposed GEF/MSP project. The proposed Project will establish a regional knowledge management mechanism to support exchange of experience and lessons learned, and eventually derive best practice and guidance on IWRM planning for use in other countries.
