The Orange-Senqu River Awareness Kit
The Orange-Senqu River Awareness Kit (Orange-Senqu RAK) is an on-line and DVD-ROM-based tool designed to support capacity development in ORASECOM and raise awareness for transboundary water issues in southern Africa. This central focal point for knowledge related to the Orange-Senqu River basin serves as a hub for information management and dissemination for ORASECOM. The structure of the Orange-Senqu RAK (themes and chapters) was defined through participatory processes involving stakeholders from all four basin states of the Orange-Senqu River basin.
Project outputs from the ongoing programe of technical activities managed by ORASECOM will be integrated as they become available along with the results of other relevant studies.
The development of the Orange-Senqu River Awareness Kit was funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in delegated cooperation in with UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). This partnership is supported by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) through the implementation of the Transboundary Water Management in SADC Programme.
