Description

The intention of the programme is to improve the integrated management of water in peri-urban and rural areas to help achieve the MDGs with regard to water and sanitation (W&S), and combating poverty from the standpoint of environmental sustainability and gender equality. Through the diffusion of appropriate technologies, better practice and social organisation frameworks and techniques for the integrated use of W&S with a basin-based focus, a culture of appropriate water use and its more efficient and effective management will be enhanced in order to reduce poverty, improve health and mitigate vulnerability to hydrometeorological disasters. This will lead to increased democratic governance, transparency and the participation of civil society in the integral management of W&S.
