Research and Capacity Development on Water Resources Management by the United Nations University: Focus on AfricaThis publication addresses the concerted efforts to bring together the activities of UNU on water in Africa, as showcased at the 12th WaterNet Symposium in October 2011. WaterNet is a regional network of university departments and research and training institutes in Southern and East Africa that specialise in water. The network aims to build regional, institutional and human capacity in integrated water resources management (IWRM) through training, education research and outreach by harnessing the complementary strengths of member institutions in the region and elsewhere. At the time of the symposium, UNW-DPC brought together six UNU institutes and programmes to showcase and discuss with scientists and decision makers their examples of water-related reserach and capacity development.
