JWESSP 2013 - 2018 - Studies
A total of four studies were carried out prior to preparation and completion of the Joint Water and Environment Sector Support Programme (JWESSP) 2013 - 2018 to support the drafting of the new Programme Document.
In order to formulate the activities and procedures within the JWESSP, the potential areas for support in the ENR sub-sector and next steps for the preparation of the JWESSP formulation phase have to be identified and assessed. This Final Report (Version 1.0) summarizes the findings of the study on options and requirement for integrating the ENR sub-sector into the planned JWESSP for the period 2013-2018.
Capacity development (CD) is at the heart of sector performance and attainment of the sector goals set out in the National Development Plan (2010-2015), the Ministerial Policy Statement (2011/ 12) and the Sector Investment Plan (2009-2035) and supported by a wide ranging policy and legal framework. For the Water and Environment Sector, human resources are as crucial as financial resources. The importance of capacity development has long been recognized by the sector and considerable resources have been devoted to capacity building since the early 1990s. Much has been achieved as evidenced by a steadily improving sector
performance. Yet there is much still to be done.

The main objective of the "Study on Private Sector Involvement in the Water and Environment Sector" focus on establishing mechanisms for optimal involvement of the Private sector through analyzing major achievements, opportunities, weaknesses and obstacles for private sector development within the current phase taking into consideration the current approaches/methods of private sector involvement employed by the various sub-sectors.
Review of recent implementation experience and identification of strategic options to support the WfP subsector as a component of the planned Joint Water and Environment Sector Support Programme (JWESSP 2013-18).
Water for Production (WfP) refers to development and utilisation of water resources for productive use in crop irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, rural industries and other commercial uses. The WfP sector is currently focusing on water for livestock and development of water for small scale irrigation. For livestock the MWE is investing in Valley Tanks (VT) on individual farm properties. For irrigation the ministry is building dams for medium sized reservoirs, the water of which is to be used for livestock and/or irrigation schemes to be developed at a later stage. Another objective of the reservoirs is as a strategic reserve during times of severe drought. Within the framework of the new JWESSP it is expected that considerable investments will be made by the MWE and the
MAAIF into additional VTs and dams.
