CapNet draft work plan and budget 2017

Cap-Net is UNDP’s global network to strengthen capacity development at the local level towards sustainable management and development of water resources and improved access to water supply and sanitation. Cap-Net is made up of a partnership of autonomous international, regional and national institutions and networks committed to capacity development in the water sector and have accumulated many years of experience of capacity development.

The strategy document for Cap-Net UNDP (2014-2017) focuses on concepts and principles, addressing programme management, structure, mechanisms and tools, implementation and monitoring processes.
Detailed work plans will be produced annually that present concrete activities, outputs and detailed budgets by activity area, and annual reports providing detailed accounts of what has been done. The strategy is themed “Water Knowledge for All” ensuring that the IWRM paradigm moves beyond establishing the enabling environment but to practical implementation. It is postulated that “water knowledge” should not be a scarce commodity but should be available at the least possible cost with improved accessibility.

Cap-Net work plan and budget 2014

Cap-Net is UNDP’s global network to strengthen capacity development at the local level towards sustainable management and development of water resources and improved access to water supply and sanitation. Cap-Net is made up of a partnership of autonomous international, regional and national institutions and networks committed to capacity development in the water sector and have accumulated 10 years of experience of capacity development.

The UNDP Strategic Plan 2008-2013 “sets the overall direction for support to programme countries to achieve national development objectives related to the goal of accelerating progress on human development.” It guides UNDP programme activities around four focus areas: poverty reduction, democratic governance, crisis prevention and recovery, and environment and sustainable development.

The Cap-Net programme is fully aligned with the UNDP Strategic Plan, in particular emphasising support to capacity development leading to enhanced national and local capacities for human development and achievement of the MDGs. Cap-Net pursues capacity development across the four focus areas of UNDP (poverty reduction, democratic governance, crisis prevention and recovery, and environment and sustainable development) through the lens of water resources management, water being a central element
of the MDGs and fundamental to social and economic development.
