IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural resources, was founded in 1948 and brings together nearly 1,100 members (States, government agencies, NGOs and affiliates) and some 10,000 scientists and experts from 181 countries in a unique worldwide partnership. Its mission is to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable. Within the framework of global conventions IUCN has helped over 75 countries to prepare and implement national conservation and biodiversity strategies. IUCN Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) have thematic programmes (and Water and Wetlands is one of them) with projects spreading across twenty three countries in the Horn of Africa, Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and the Western Indian Ocean. IUCN is implementing (within its Water and Wetlands Programme) projects in the Lower Tana, Kenya. This includes an Austrian Aid funded project on Building drought resilience through land and water management and the Global Water Initiative (GWI) funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. The goal of the initiative is to support Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) programs through 3 strategic objectives: Good Governance to improve local and community governance and the enabling policy framework; Sustainable Multiple Uses of Water which includes efficient, effective and equitable domestic and productive uses of water, sanitation, hygiene, and watershed management; and Risk Management so that vulnerable rural communities have increased resilience to water-related shocks. The project is being implemented in the Lower Tana River Basin under the coordination of a National Coordinator, housed by CRS. The 1st three-year phase of the project took place between October 2008 and September 2011 and the 2nd three-year phase is scheduled for October 2011 to September 2014. The 2nd phase while will build on the experiences to date, will put emphasis on policy influencing, advocacy and research. The Austrian Aid funded project complements GWI and demonstrates the application of a framework for resilience in practice that is based on cohesive approaches to diversifying livelihoods and markets, improving natural and engineered infrastructure around water points, strengthening natural resource governance processes including water resource management and sharing experiences and learning across sectors and governance levels. The project aims to strengthen community, catchment and local stakeholder capacity to manage and adapt to the impacts of increasingly severe and frequent drought in the region.
