"Clean water for a healthy world"

March 19, 2010.  

March 22 is World Water Day. Water use is one of ZEF’s strategic research topics. The Center is involved in water related research all over the world: in Uzbekistan, ZEF has developed innovative solutions for an improved management of natural resources, including water use. In Vietnam, ZEF is involved in a project investigating water related information systems in the Mekong Delta (WISDOM). In Ethiopia, ZEF cooperates with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in a project on Re-Thinking Water Storage in sub-Saharan Africa. In the Middle Olifants sub-basin of South Africa, ZEF investigates solutions for better Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). For Ghana and Burkina Faso ZEF has provided science-based options for improved water management in the Volta River Basin. As a follow-up, knowledge and technology is being transferred in close cooperation with local stakeholders to the local decision makers.
