WaterNet is involved in three collaborative research programmes under the UNESCO-IHE Partnership Research Fund (UPaRF) viz. Power2Flow (Hydropower-to-environment water transfers in the Zambezi basin: balancing ecosystem health with hydropower generation in hydropower-dominated basins), Riskoman (Risk-based operational water management for the Incomati River basin) and SSI-2 (Upscaling small-scale land and water system innovations in dryland agro-ecosystems for sustainability and livelihood improvements).


WaterNet participated in two recently-concluded projects: the Challenge Programme on Water for Food Phase 1, where WaterNet coordinated an IWRM research programme in the Limpopo Basin with 19 partner institutions and the Smallholder System Innovation Watershed Management Phase 1 (SSI Programme) which involved 5 partners (4 WaterNet members) who conduct research in river basins in Tanzania (Pangani) and South Africa (Thukela).

There are more details of Power2Flow here, Riskoman here, the Challenge Program here and the SSI Programme here.


WaterNet publishes online Working Papers, containing topical material from research projects - see the list here.
