Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) training for the Cuvelai Watercourse Commission

A four day training on IWRM related issues was held for Cuvelai Watercourse Commission CUVECOM from 11–14 September 2018 in Ondangwa, Namibia. The training was attended by 29 senior officials from Angola and Namibia.

The objective of the training course was to introduce participants to the concept and principles of IWRM, and how IWRM can be practically applied at various scales in the Cuvelai Basin.

At the end of the course participants highlighted that they had an enhanced understanding of why and how IWRM is important in the sustainable transboundary water resource management, which contributes to meeting a number of Sustainable Development Goals. The course was conducted in an interactive manner and drew upon examples and case studies from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

The course was undertaken on behalf of the SADC Water Division and funded by the cooperation of the German and British Governments through the delegated authority of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH.
