Description
The proposed project specific objectives and incremental expected outcomes/activities are : * (i) To strengthen the capacity of countries in the joint assessment monitoring, protection and sustainable exploitation of their groundwater resources (Outcome1.1. Strengthened knowledge and monitoring capacity in countries enhances the role and improves the sustainability of groundwater resources in the Basin also in view of climatic variability and change) ; * (ii) To raise awareness, including through pilot demonstrations, on the benefits that can be derived by the exploitation of deep seated aquifers and of their energy content, and by the use of subsurface space for systematic application of MAR practices and for storage and disposal purposes (Outcome 2.1, and 2.2, Introducing the systematic consideration of subsurface space utilization options improves countries ability to address climate variability and change, surface water flows variations, and environmental hazards). * (iii) To build the countries capacity in conjunctive surface and groundwater management (Outcome2.1. Existing national and international water policy and institutional frameworks enabled to incorporate consideration of groundwater, climate variability and change, and gender into IWRM planning) ; * (iv) To assist countries in their dialogue on the legal and institutional aspects of groundwater management at the national and transboundary levels, with consideration of the provisions of the 1992 Water Convention (UNECE) on the protection and use of transboundary watercourses and international lakes, and of the 2008 UNGA Resolution on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers (Outcome 2.2. Basin-wide exchange of information and experiences facilitates transboundary cooperation and replication of good practices, and Outcome 4.1. Raised awareness of decision makers and practitioners on existing legal instruments, guidelines and good practices related to groundwater governance, promotes adoption and advances national and regional policy dialogue).
