    Through its innovative operations, and its facilitation of dynamic

    communities of researchers, development experts, policy makers,

    producers and consumers, this CGIAR Challenge Program goes

    beyond research for development as usually practiced.

    Yet, paradoxically for a program well-versed in technical and

    social complexity, the CPWF approach is simple: to effectively

    address a shared problem, we must first work together.

    The River Nile provides an invaluable source of livelihoods to over 160 million of people who dwell in its valley. The river valley is renowned for being a cradle of civilisation. As the populations grew and civilisation evolved, the demand for more water resources took a toll in the region. The more recent visible climate change effects have further compounded water management in the basin. Water and food security in the region is under threat, hence the need for robust transboundary water management. An effective institutional arrangement is a key factor in facilitating this process.

    Poverty in rural households have deepened in the past two years through world events: unprecedented rises in food and fuel prices were followed by global economic meltdown, all amidst growing climate uncertainty. Balancing water availability within and across growing seasons, water harvesting helps to buffer households against drought. Research on water harvesting in South Africa has focused on rural household livelihoods. Innovative results on appropriate water harvesting technologies and food security facilitation techniques are now being implemented in villages across South Africa.

    Décadas de escasa inversión pública en agricultura han debilitado la capacidad de los agricultores para hacer frente a la volatilidad de los precios, a los cambios climáticos y económicos, o para poder salir por sí mismos de la pobreza. Sin embargo, los donantes y los gobiernos deben considerar la inversión en agricultura como parte de la solución a largo plazo frente a las crisis alimentaria, financiera y climática.
