DescriptionThe Strategic Action Programme formulated under this project will contribute to the conservation of natural ecosystems and to social and economic development in order to satisfy present and future demands minimizing water conflicts. The major components of the SAP formulation include: i) the strengthening of a basin-wide information system that provides the mechanisms for gathering and dissemination of data adequate to the needs of decision-making for the integrated management of the basin; ii) the creation of a well-coordinated bilateral planning process for the SJRB; iii) the implementation of a public participation process; iv) the strengthening of public institutions and private organizations; and v) the formulation and implementation of environmental education activities. Its execution is expected to bring both local and global benefits, such as conservation of the water cycle, the preservation of major water bodies and of the region’s biodiversity, and the protection of extensive carbon sinks.
