Africa is going to be one of the regions most in need of innovative solutions for tackling water and Climate Change-related challenges. The successful interaction among relevant stakeholders from both Africa and Europe in water management is of principal importance when trying to generate, increase and exchange knowledge and innovation that address the demands for solutions that have noticeable and high impact.
This is why we now invite applications for the first set of demand-driven, problem-focused AfriAlliance Action Groups. The Action Groups will seek to reduce fragmentation in water and climate actions within Africa and between Africa and the European Union by bringing together relevant knowledge, expertise and solutions. We invite you to create an Action Group for effective, problem-focused knowledge sharing. It will allow you to jointly demonstrate your innovative idea, undertake pilot activities together, and share knowledge between stakeholders and networks at all scales to effectively identify and address vulnerabilities.
The activities of the Action Group will focus on one issue from the following themes:
Integrated Water Resource Management
Food Security / Agriculture
Human Capacity Development
Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
Water and Climate Data monitoring collection forecasting and analysis
The Terms of Reference (ToR), which include these themes and further sub-themes, also detail what is expected of an Action Group, the application process, the eligibility criteria and the funding available.
