Case Studies

In the development of the programme, the engagement of participants was considered as an important issue. Therefore, participants of the workshops were asked to develop and present a case study related to the one of the topics of the lectures.

The case studies presented by participants during the first edition of the workshop were collected in a publication (Case studies - Volume 2).

The same process was followed for the second edition of the workshop, from which participants developed case studies (Case studies - Volume 3).

By making this material available, participants have access to the collection of examples and experiences that could be useful in their professional careers and could be used as basis for their works.

The list of the presented case studies in Case studies - Volume 2 follows:

  • “Vulnerability and pollution risks of groundwater on the island of Santiago – Cabo Verde”, Cabo Verde;
  • “Assessment of water harvesting structures for sustainable livelihoods and pace–building”, South Sudan;
  • “Competing water uses and conflicts in great Ruaha River catchment, Tanzania”, Tanzania;
  • “The sand dams technology as a means of adapting to the impacts of extreme conditions”, Swaziland;
  • “Feasibility study for the adaptation of low-cost desalination technologies for boreholes from Chigubo, Gaza Province”, Mozambique;
  • “Effluent utilization through a constructed wetland system at DWA HQ”, Botswana;
  • “Irrigation water use implications for integrated water resources management in Botswana”, Botswana;
  • “Inspection of service reservoirs at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nigeria”, Nigeria;
  • “Managing water resources, experience from United Republic of Tanzania”, Tanzania;
  • “The challenges of potable water provision in the context of rapid urbanization: The case of Accra”, Ghana.

Feedback received about the publication process of Volume 2 and Volume 3:

We have no excuses now in comparing what’s happening in the water sectors in the different countries and seeing the links with own countries etc. etc. so as to apply best practices for sustainable management of water for ourselves and future generations.” Anna Odur, Uganda.
