Genesis has been appointed to the long-term monitoring, evaluation and learning role on Resilient Waters, a five-year programme that aims to build more resilient and water-secure Southern African communities and ecosystems.
Resilient Waters aims to build more resilient and water-secure Southern African communities and ecosystems through improved management of transboundary natural resources; increased access to safe drinking water and sanitation services; strengthened ability of communities and key institutions to adapt to the impacts of climate change; and conserved biodiversity and ecosystems services.
In implementing the Resilient Waters Programme, Genesis forms part of a consortium led by Chemonics on a USAID-funded programme. Genesis is joined in the consortium by JG Afrika, the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition (CST) and the Peace Parks Foundation (PPF).
Genesis has a long-term monitoring, evaluation and learning role on the programme and provides additional technical assistance in private-sector financing for conservation agriculture and infrastructure development and maintenance. Genesis also contributes to the Resilient Waters strategic advisory group to ensure collective strategic thinking on the programme, promote integration and tackle high-level challenges and opportunities.
The focus countries in the project are Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
