RENEWAL PROJECT FOR WATER SECURITY IN AFRICA

Research and Evaluation of Nexuses of the Exploitation of Water in African Law.

Having a strong system of water laws will accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ensure the longevity of advancements.

RENEWAL will create a database of the laws directly managing water resources as well as those laws impacting water resource management and protection. This includes examining the application and enforcement of written laws. The database will be accompanied by an impartial analysis of how the systems of laws, regulations, judicial interpretations and related policies work together to manage water resources.

Once completed, the Center for Water Secutity and Cooperation(CWSC) in partnership with local stakeholders will evaluate the effectiveness of the water law framework, identifying strengths, shortcomings, gaps and inconsistencies to chart out a clear plan for how to better advance water security.

Five countries are involved in RENEWAL: Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Sudan, South Africa and Kenya.

RENEWAL will be implemented in Côte d’Ivoire by PADES in partnership with the Center for Water Security and Cooperation, headquartered in Washington, DC.
