Authors: Long Hoang and Mohammed Yasir (MetaMeta)
Description: The report brings together several IWRM interventions and lessons learned from the Aqua4Sudan Partnership . Aqua4Sudan is a nation-wide partnership, consisting of International Aid Services (IAS), Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), Practical Action, Plan Sudan, SOS Sahel, World Relief and ZOA (lead partner). This partnership puts forward the operational concept and large-scale implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management across six states of Sudan.
Some of the notable impacts found are:
- Immediate impacts are improved soil and water conditions for farming and water for livestock.
- Improved water availability has introduced a repertoire of opportunities, which were picked up by the local community.
- Improved farming productivity directly boosted household food supply, nutrition uptake and health. This impact widely reached the entire community as farmers were able to quickly reach local markets and increase their food supplies.
- Long-term, indirect impacts include women’s empowerment and active participation in the workforce.
