Okavango Integrated River Basin Management Project (IRBM)

by librarian2 — last modified Jan 10, 2013 08:45 AM

USAID's regional environmental program in Southern Africa focuses on improving management of shared river basins. USAID consulted with the Permanent Okavango River Basin Water Commission (OKACOM) and river basin stakeholders, non-governmental organizations and other donors in the design of the Integrated River Basin Management Project (IRBM), a four-year, US$6 million initiative. IRBM combines with other basin-wide initiatives, such as the Environmental Protection and Sustainable Management of the Okavango River Basin Project (EPSMO), financed by the UNDP-Global Environment Facility (UNDP-GEF) and the Every River Has Its People Project (ERP), supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) in the implementation of improved river basin management activities. IRBM will also liaise and coordinate with numerous national initiatives and programs.
