AMCOW Capacity Building – Building capacity for climate resilient decision-making in water investments


Project Reference: TAAF-0039

Through consultation with WACDEP and the Global Water Partnership, the elected supplier, NIRAS, will:

  • Develop a training course on the skills and knowledge required for no/low regret investment strategies in water-related development planning
  • Coordinate the design, translation, printing and web dissemination of course materials
  • Subcontract, train and manage regional and national Capacity Building Teams to deliver the course to end users

This project builds directly on TAAF-0026, Global Water Partnership: Framework for Water and Climate Development Programme. The previous project designed a strategic framework to help senior professionals and decision-makers identify and develop ‘no or low regret’ investment strategies, integrate these into planning processes, and influence future development activities to become more resilient to climate change and variability. The current project funds the implementation of the Capacity Development work package of TAAF-0026. It will deepen the knowledge of methods and concepts outlined in the GWP Framework and supporting technical documents.
