First Sio-Malaba-Malakisi basin stakeholders’ consultative workshop: initiation of a Benefit Opportunities Assessment Dialogue

16 - 18 May 2017

Kisumu, Kenya

The workshop engaged key stakeholders from the Sio-Malaba-Malakisi (SMM) basin in a joint basin visioning process.

The workshop made it possible to:

- analyze challenges and opportunities for transboundary water cooperation in the SMM basin, building on past and on-going activities and studies for the basin related to transboundary water cooperation;
- develop a common understanding among key basin actors of the main benefits of transboundary water cooperation in the SMM Basin, as well as some of the opportunities for realizing them
- issue recommendations on the design of the next steps of project activities in the SMM basin.

The workshop was organized under the framework of the project “Strengthening transboundary water governance and cooperation in the IGAD region”, implemented by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Secretariat with the support of IUCN and UNECE.
