Project ID 728ZIM2000

Erratic rainfall and poor water management practices have a negative impact on the water security in the rural communities of Binga and Buhera districts in Zimbabwe. As these often result in the failure of productive systems, the project aims to increase local communities' adaptive capacity and resilience to climate change through sustainable groundwater exploitation. An array of actions will be implemented at national to local levels and involving institutional reforms, characterization and quantification of the groundwater resources, knowledge generation and capacity development, and awareness raising through piloting and demonstration.
