WATER SECTOR CHALLENGES
  • Growing spatial mismatch between water resources
    and water demand, requiring transfer schemes.
  • High variability of annual run-off related to
    highly variable rainfall patterns, limiting the
    safe yields of dams
  • Lack of suitable high yielding dam sites,
    especially near demand centers, leading to high
    evaporation rates from dams
  • Most surface-waters are subjected to compliance
    to the SADC Protocol on Shared water courses

5
WATER SECTOR CHALLENGES
  • Limited g/w resources with high variations in
    recharge rates coupled with salinity problems
    e.g. greator part of the Kahalari
  • Escalating domestic, urban and peri-urban water
    demand and high water losses
  • Contamination of water sources- sanitation is
    lagging behind, sanitation is not a question of
    latrines, it is also very much a matter of
    planning, city treatment facilities, preservation
    of wellfields etc.

6
DWA STRATEGIES FOR AVAILING WATER FOR THE PEOPLE
DEVELOPMENT
  • Institutional restructuring
  • Water infrastructure development
  • Water conservation and demand management
  • Capacity building

7
INSTITUTIONAL RESTRUCTURING STRATEGY
  • To address the above challenges, MMEWR is
    currently undertaking institutional restructuring
    of its water sector based on the NWMPR 2006
    recommendations of separating the resource
    management role from the water supply service
    role .
  • This reform was motivated by the recognition that
    the existing government policies and
    organizational structures may not be adequate
    and modern to manage scarce resources of the
    country.
  • The water authorities were reduced to two,
    namely DWA and WUC.
  • The review of the legal framework and
    establishment of the two legal bodies being,
    Water Resources Council, and Water Energy
    Regulator is currently underway and expected to
    be completed by 2014.
  • DWA and WUC are currently realigning themselves
    to carryout the new roles of being a resource
    manager and water supply respectively.

8
DWAS MANDATE AND SPECIFIC ROLES
  • DWAs mandate as the resource manager is to
  • Plan, develop, manage and protect the countrys
    water resources for sustainable contribution to
    the socio-economic growth.
  • This mandate includes reducing vulnerability of
    the water resources systems to hydrologic
    variability and climate change through a
    comprehensive planning and risk management
  • Specifically, DWA plays the following roles in
    the water sector.
  • Strategic Role This involves an ongoing
    assessment of the economic role of water in the
    countrys development and a strong planning
    function.
  • Analytical Role As Botswana is a water scarce
    county, research and development is needed to
    meet the challenges faced by the rural
    population, and mining and industry. Will serve
    as the principal research support to the WRC.
  • Management Role The limited water resources of
    the country need active demand management as well
    as water use and abstraction control.
  • Development and Service Role The DWA is a
    service oriented dept that works with the water
    using sectors (agriculture, mining and industry,
    energy etc.) to ensure that water is provided and
    used efficiently while the resources are managed
    in a sustainable manner.

9
WATER INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
  • Strategic infrastructure development strategy is
    meant to facilitate wise/ conjunctive use of both
    surface and ground water resources which entails
  • The planning, design and construction of major
    water infrastructure
  • Dams Under Construction Dikgatlhong (400 MCM,
    Feb. 2012) Thune (90 MCM,2013), Lotsane (42 MCM,
    dec. 2011).
  • Strategic Pipelines North South Carrier (NSC 2)
    and Chobe Zambezi
  • Wellfield development will be continued
  • Infrastructure for artificial recharge in areas
    such as Maun, Thune etc will be put in place
  • Infrastructure that will facilitate the
    utilization of saline groundwaters etc. will be
    put in place
  • Waste water recycling infrastructure will be
    developed in areas such as Palapye Serowe,
    Ghanzi, Gaborone.

10
WATER CONSERVATION AND DEMAND MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
  • Strategy for water conservation and demand
    management for the NDP 10 is fully informed by
    the NWMPR 2006 recommendations which is as
    follows
  • Review of the existing policies and development
    of action plans as per the NWMPR 2006
  • Development of effective water systems monitoring
    protocols, Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation
    of Water Resources
  • During NDP 10, Government shall ensure
  • That information required for decision-making on
    water resources is collected and analyzed.
  • That information acquired is fully utilized for
    strategic planning for the use, development, and
    protection of water resources.

11
WATER CONSERVATION AND DEMAND MANAGEMENT CONT...
  • That change in water use is dynamic enough to
    cope with changing priorities and conditions. 
  • In addition, during NDP 10, Government shall
  • Establish an independent quality monitoring and
    evaluation division as part of the Regulator for
    monitoring and evaluation of services provided in
    the water sector both at project implementation
    and service delivery (timeliness, water quality,
    cost and water conservation).
  • Establish water quality testing laboratories.
  • In addition, the review of the status of all
    water supply systems and national metering will
    be undertaken in order to determine the future
    investments required in terms of capital
    expenditure and major

WATER CONSERVATION AND DEMAND MANAGEMENT CONT...
  • Director of Ceremonies, Our solutions will
    require behavioral change, more integrated
    planning and sound economic principles.
  • Citizens should have greater say and should be
    more water literate.
  • Clearly, pure technological and engineering
    approaches will not be enough.
  • The media should also play a role in educating
    the public, so that consumers can work
    cooperatively with politicians and encourage them
    to take more prominent leadership roles in water
    management.

14
CAPACITY BUILDING STRATEGY
  • During NDP 10 the following shall be carried out
    in order to build capacity in the water sector
    and facilitate effective project implementation
  • Training facilities for applied engineering in
    the water sector organizations in collaboration
    with relevant institutions (e.g. BOTA, University
    of Botswana, Botswana University of Science and
    Technology) will be established ------to
    capacitate the Water Resource Planning,
    Development and Management Programs .
  • Funding from multilateral sources shall be
    explored (international donors/
    investors)--------to enhance the financial
    resourcing of the Water Resource Planning,
    Development and Management Programs.

15
CAPACITY BUILDING CONT
  • Utilization of Public Private Partnership (PPP)
    for all infrastructure development projects, as a
    means of facilitating private sector
    participation in the water sector will be
    encouraged/enhanced under the IWRM framework.
  • Outsourcing of services
  • Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC)
    tendering model shall be followed in projects
    where complexity and value justify, such as the
    Zambezi Transfer, Cross Border Pipeline and NSC
    2.
  • Partnership with stakeholders will be formed for
    information exchange.
  • Information, education awareness creation on
    water resource issues will be pursued

WATER PITSO
  • The 1ST WATER PITSO (Stakeholder Symposium) is a
    stakeholder meeting that has been initiated to
    cultivate and build solid partnerships between
    the Government through Ministry of Minerals,
    Energy and Water Resources and all water
    stakeholders.
  • Pitso provides a platform for us to evaluate or
    assess progress made towards meeting the Pillars
    of Vision 2016, Millennium Development Goals and
    water policy goals that are outlined in the
    National Development Plan 10.
  • The theme of the Water Pitso is Water for the
    People and Development Key Priorities and
    Challenges

20
WATER PITSO
  • The objectives of this symposium are as follows
  • Improve and build meaningful relationships with
    all water stakeholders
  • Exchange views and experiences between government
    and water sector stakeholders
  • Share progress and updates on water policy,
    projects and programs
  • Address pertinent issues that affect the water
    sector
  • Provide info. on DWA services to the people
    (service delivery)

21
WATER PITSO
  • Without cross-sectoral cooperation, we would not
    be able to meet our goals for the future.
  • It is only through an integrated approach
    involving all stakeholders across all sectors and
    disciplines that we will find sustainable
    solutions to the many water problems that we
    face.
  • We need to recognize that technical solutions are
    not enough to face all the water challenges.
  • The time of easy water is over we must act
    before disaster strike.
