Project // S-MultiStor: Sustainable Hydropower and Multipurpose Storage to Meet the Water, Food and Energy SDG's

This project is a 3-year program to investigate and demonstrate improved approaches to sustainable multipurpose water storage, including both gray and green storage. We have assembled a consortium of leading international partner organizations responsible for developing and testing decision-support tools that have the potential to make a measurable impact on sustainable development.

S-MultiStor will create a common research and innovation platform where researchers from IHE Delft and southern partner institutions engage with leading international initiatives in a structured program of collaboration. DUPC2 funds are being sought to support a core set of activities aligned with DGIS themes and geographic priorities, including the Irrawaddy Basin of Myanmar, Zambezi Basin of Southern Africa, and Magdalena Basin of Colombia. Specific research outputs will new knowledge to improve decision support tools for basin-scale planning of new storage and improved tools for improved design and operation of individual facilities. Development outcomes will include improved catchment management for water, food, and energy security that is socially and environmentally sustainable and contributes directly to Agenda 2030.

Projet Nexus// Améliorer la sécurité et la résilience au changement climatique dans les contextes fragiles à travers le Nexus Eau-Energie - Sécurité Alimentaire (Frexus), au Mali, au Niger et au Tchad.

Le cercle vicieux rareté-concurrence-conflits-instabilité qui pèse actuellement sur de nombreuses communautés du Sahel peut se transformer en un cercle vertueux de résilience-gestion durable des ressources-coopération-sécurité. Pour y parvenir, le projet Frexus promeut des approches intersectorielles et intégrées pour la gestion des ressources naturelles, au sein des communautés locales confrontées aux conséquences de la rareté des ressources et aux impacts du changement climatique. Frexus...

Project // Improving Security and Climate Resilience in a fragile Context through the Water-Energy and Food Security Nexus (Frexus)

The Frexus project fosters cross-sectoral and integrated approaches in resource management, within local communities in Mali, Niger and Chad that are faced with the consequences of resource scarcity and climate change. The vicious cycle of resource scarcity, competition, conflict and instability currently challenging many communities, can be turned into a virtuous cycle of resilience, sustainable resources management, cooperation and security. Frexus (Nexus in Fragile contexts) aims at providing...
