Fast socio-economic development, rapid urbanization and industrialization have imposed intense pressure on the country's environment and natural resources. That's why water and sanitation management in the framework of urbanization and climate change were a priority to us.
We were supporting 3 provinces to study downscaling climate change models; socio-economic surveys; hydrologic and hydraulic modelling; mangroves restoration; and technical and institutional capacity assessment.
A technical support unit was anchored in the Ministry of Planning and Investment to coordinate and streamline the integration of the water management and climate change dimension in socio-economic development plan at all levels. ‘Green growth’ provincial actions plans and procurement policies were also drafted with our support.
