CONTRIBUTE TO THE DELFT AGENDA

The key findings and recommendations of the 6th International Symposium on Capacity Development will be summarized in a short agenda for action, the Delft Agenda. This statement will be developed during the conference in a process that is transparent, accountable and participatory. As the conference is held as an online event, including as many views and ideas as possible in the outcome documents is a priority for the conveners. This document will evolve throughout the conference based on participant input and the discussions in plenaries and thematic tracks. The draft Delft Agenda will be presented and discussed in the High-level Concluding Panel on Thursday June 4th

As an academic I was always interested in impact. Today I have experience across the whole research cycle - producing, disseminating and evaluating it. I'm fascinated by how knowledge does (and doesn't) move across boundaries - be they disciplinary, cultural or sectoral.

Dear Madame,

 

Please find attached bellow details of my contribution for pacific implementation of CapDevSymposium 2020.

My contribution for 2020 Delft Agenda on knowledge and capacity for the water Sector.

Based on Knowledge from CapDevSymposium from 26th up to 29 May 2020 and my experiences for 12 years in water Sector.

Especially working in Rwanda as one of under Developed country where many people suffers from extreme poverty which affected in general their life, especially for the vulnerable people and children.

As known access to safe and clean water play a vital role in social and economic development, poverty reduction and public health and for to respond on this priority and started from many years ,the countries elaborated policy for facilitating the implementation of this activity.

And the Government strongly recognizes of international and regional communities and continues to cooperate with for achieving the sustainable Development Goals under the 2030 Agenda.

By the under developed countries like ours have the common challenges which handicap the Development especially in water sector.

Some of them are mentioned above:

  • The highest field (terrain) that needs expensive motorized water system.
  • Lack of reliable water resources data on quantity and quality that is required for long and medium term planning.
  • Lack of operation and maintenance of the hydro methodological stations due to the financial constraints.
  • Lack of hydrological data for facilitating management of water resources in an equitable and rational manner.
  • Poor sanitation, lack of urban and industrial wastewater treatment mining activities and intensive agriculture applying
  • Most of the towns don’t have data water supply infrastructure
  • Rural water services has insufficient capacities to adequately manage rural water
  • The highest prices of water consumption.

Attention: We acknowledge that no community is static; all communities around the world have been dynamic moving from one stage for development to accomplish in water sector and has their Baseline Data .The UN funds have helped them to make the construction of infrastructures in water sector but the challenges still on capacity building of the community help them to know the SDG6 target with 2030,insecurity and risk associated with water scarcity ,flooding, storm and sea level rise increasing the combined forces of climate and drawing water demand propelled by economic growth how could see the world tip from a predominantly water abundant place, to one that is predominantly water-scores by 2045.

Based on the recommendation given by the 6th CapDevSymposium 2020, the 2020 Delft Agenda on knowledge and capacity for the water Sector has to consider the following elements for track 6: Acceleration knowledge sharing among organization and in civil society.

  1. The Governments have to integrate or review water and climate change courses curricula at all education level primary, secondary, high level and technical school for  increasing their skills and knowledge about water sector challenges.
  2. Special courses will be prepared and organized for Civil society, Institutional, Local community.
  3. The social media (radio, journal,) will be used for water and climate change challenge transmission at all level of communication.
  4. The Governments will continue elaboration of the policy for implementation of infrastructures for providing the safe water in rural areas and even in urban in need by encouraging and mobilize private –sector investment in new infrastructure, ensure sustainable functionality of rural water supply infrastructure by strengthening and maintenance management arrangements.
  5. To develop a set of master plans that define for entire national territory the projects and investments needs to achieve 100%.
  6. Develop a financial plan for achieving 100% for their plan in water sector.
  7. Empower Districts for effective management project implemented.
  8. Ensure effective technical support and monitoring of water services.
  9. Strengthen community –Based organization for infrastructure water management.
  10. Mobilize the people for principal of ownership politic.

 

Thanks for your facilitation with patient during the CapDevSymposium 2020.

Dear Madame,

Out of my last contribution ,I would like to add some elements for facilitating implementation of CapDevSymposium 2020.

In additional on the my last contribution ,i would like to add the following elements for helping our countries achieving SDG6 . 1.Putting more effort or water resources management because we identify the percentage of 60-80 % of water loss for only infrastructure we have in place. 2.We don't have new and modern techniques for cycling water especially in towns and water used in the family is lost without putting in reservoir. 3.We don't have the techniques of rainwater harvesting and conservation of family utilities. 4.We need the techniques of using CASH WATER on the public taps with water meters. 5.We need to use the water resources by thinking on future generation. Thanks   Alexis MUDAHERANWA

Our session on Gender Matters had two specific calls for action in the water sector. The need for:

 More (non-traditional) role models – we need more visibility!

Unconscious/implicit bias training.

Although the need for more role models has been highlighted in several reports, the call for specific unconscious bias training in our sector is new and should be specifically acknowledged in point 7.c

Below are the previous reports on gender in the water sector, which our session followed on from:
