Titre : WATERMAN Dissemination of research results in semi-arid and arid ecosystems with a focus on sustainable water resource management in Ethiopia

Pays : Ethiopie

Code du projet : 31694 FP6-INCO

Durée : From 2006-10-01 to 2008-03-31

Descriptif
This SSA focuses on analysis and dissemination of research results in sustainable, integrated water resource management at river-basin scale within Ethiopia. WATERMAN is a resubmission of a proposal submitted in the last call (INCO-DEV Sept. 2004) which was rated as being "highly relevant" and passed all thresholds, but was not retained for funding because of budgetary restrictions. In accordance to the overall remarks made in the Evaluation Summary Report, the following changes have been adopted in the new proposal :
* Extension of the consortium to include two more relevant European partners
* More detail and a new topic concerning participatory approaches has been added to the list of sub-topics dealt with in the project. To stress the importance of this issue, it will be the central theme at first Kick-off meeting.
* Two new African partners have been added to the consortium to increase the dissemination and impact of the SSA results, both nationally and internationally. _ The 18-month project activities include ; three workshops at each of the Ethiopian universities, a scientific Project Plan Award and an international symposium. All activities focus on strategies and actions for enhanced and sustainable economic productivity with four sub-topics :
1. Use of participatory approaches to integrate socio-economic, ethical and gender issues into research and dissemination to shorten impact times and increase broad uptake
2. Integrated water supply and resource management (innovative, multi-purpose utilisation, competing demands)
3. Agriculture and irrigation (recycling, reuse, prevent erosion at source)
4. Salinity, water logging and soil fertility
