The Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF), Phase I, was mandated to design, mobilize finance for, and build climate resilient, pro-poor and transboundary water projects. COWI supported the planning, design and capacity development across the SADC Region to support stronger regional cooperation within the 13 transboundary river basins and its population of about 95 million people. Water insecurity across these basins is high – with frequent droughts interspersed by flooding. Reliable access to water for drinking, sanitation, agriculture and industry is already limited, constraining human development and economic growth. Given projected scenarios for greater water demand (resulting from population growth and economic development) and more variable water supply (due to the impacts of climate change) riparian states are required to strengthen their cooperation over shared rivers to protect and achieve development gains. Within this context, CRIDF1 delivered, and CRIDF2 will continue to deliver, climate resilient water infrastructure interventions that include: › Water Infrastructure Projects Identification and development of infrastructure projects through the entire cycle from scoping, feasibility and detailed design, procurement through to implementation. CRIDF supports the in-country procurement, financing and supervi-sion systems for infrastructure projects that, once completed, would be owned and managed by national and local authorities, water/energy utilities and beneficiary associations. The projects are used as platforms to further engage stakeholders, introducing climate resilience and transboundary concepts into national and regional policies. Subse-quently the lessons and evidence from the projects are disseminated through stakeholder networks in an effort to replicate success, and mainstream climate resilience and pro-poor considerations into water management practices. Where feasible power supply is provided through renewable energy installations, such as solar; › Infrastructure financing arrangements In addition to funding CAPEX for projects from its own budgets, CRIDF mobilizes infrastructure finance interventions to complement the infrastructure preparation work. This work focuses on investigating and securing innovative finance arrangements and funding partners for the implementation of the infrastructure projects that CRIDF will have pre-pared. By doing so, CRIDF seeks to leverage the maximum available support to catalyse transformation in joint plan-ning and implementation of climate resilient infrastructure. › Technical assistance to stakeholders CRIDF provides extensive technical assistance to the relevant stakeholders, ranging from long-term advice to key insti-tutions, to a rapid advisory service to respond to ad hoc requests. Such technical assistance aims at influencing the comprehensive planning and management of water infrastructure projects in the shared river basin context; › Building cooperation The overarching objective of CRIDF’s strategic interventions is that projects should be transformational in terms of their impact on building climate resilience for the poor in southern Africa. CRIDF actively promote changing the ena-bling environment in which CRIDF and other climate resilient infrastructure projects are designed, managed, imple-mented and operated, with a key aim to build cooperation through regional climate resilient economic growth, thereby shifting the way decision makers think, plan, operate and maintain water infrastructure. › Strategic Communications CRIDF has a comprehensive communication strategy that aims at stakeholders are informed about the background and the results of CRIDF using different communication avenues. CRIDF has produced a broad range of communications materials to share their work to bring transformational change to Southern Africa through improved transboundary water resources management from written briefs, brochures, case studies video documentaries. CRIDF combines different types of written materials, website news stories, resource centre for downloads and communication cam-paigns for effective dissemination. › Monitoring and Learning Framework The CRIDF has a functioning monitoring and learning framework that serves a dual purpose; i) to provide sufficient accurate data to programme management for decision making purposes (programme monitoring) and ii) to monitor and scrutinise programme process and implementation to provide. The CRIDF monitoring and learning approach is based on the OECD DAC criteria of Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability. In addition, given the regional and facilitative nature of CRIDF the approach take into considerations the OECD DAC
The Nepal Health Sector Programme 3 (NHSP3) is funded by the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID) to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) through the Nepal Health Sector Support Programme (NHSSP). NHSP3 is designed to support the goals of the Nepal Health Sector Strategy (NHSS) 2015/16 - 2020/21 and assist the MOHP in building resilient health systems to provide quality health services for all. From April 2017 to December 2020, NHSSP is being implemented by a consortium led by Options Consultancy Limited with Health Research and Social Development Forum International, Oxford Policy Management, and Miyamoto International. The programme has two components: a. General Health Technical Assistance to increase the capacity of the MOHP to improve health policy-making and planning, procurement and financial management, health services delivery and the use of evidence for planning and management b. Retrofitting Health Infrastructure Technical Assistant to enhance the MOHP capacity to retrofit health infrastructure to withstand future earthquakes

Our vision is to enable water security through developing and demonstrating a systems and capacity building approach that better understands water systems; values all aspects of water; and strengthens water governance to enable integrated water management. The Hub brings together an internationally leading team of researchers from Colombia, Ethiopia, India, Malaysia and the UK. Each of our 8 objectives is a step towards to our overarching vision: 1. Embed systems approaches within Water Collaboratories to identify transition pathways to water secure cities and catchments; 2. Map and understand Water Systems: (i) Collect and share data about physical, social, environmental aspects of the water system, and, (ii) Develop cloud services that provide information such as water quantity, quality, risks etc. to stakeholders; 3. Plan Water Systems: Reduce water security planning costs in developing nations with tools for rapid optioneering to quickly prototype, assess benefits, and approximate costs of water security interventions; 4. Value Water Systems: Embrace social, cultural, spiritual, environmental and economic values; and reconcile these values in a just and equitable manner that ensures the human right to water; 5. Govern Water Systems for all: Build capacity to allow all stakeholders to participate and cooperate in water security decisions, to enable a transition to integrated water governance that leaves no one behind; 6. Invest in Water Systems: Create tools to access finance and precipitate action by bringing together value capture and integrated governance mechanisms, to provide effective service delivery/business models; 7. Embed Water Systems and water security in the knowledge economy: Build interdisciplinary research capacity in all participants to tackle water security challenges beyond the initial five years of the Hub; and, 8. Lead in Water Systems: Continuously monitor, evaluate, and learn; and share to ensure real world impact, so the Hub is judged to be a global leader in water security by public, private, civic and academic actors.
