The KYB Project's goal, objectives and expected results
The KYB Project started with the goal: the equitable and sustainable use of land and water resources of the Komadugu Yobe Basin (KYB) through improved management. The long-term goal of the Project is now changed to ensure the security of poor people and their livelihoods enhanced through demonstrating, replicating and scaling-up of restoration and sustainable management of water resources and ecosystem services in the Second Phase of the Project.
The First Phase of the Project started with a purpose of helping to establish a framework for broad-based and informed decision-making process based on agreed principles for equitable use and sustainable management of the KYB. This was done using the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approaches that incorporate ecosystem concepts to develop and coordinate solutions in the basin.
Under the Second Phase, the Water and Nature Initiative (WANI) will work closely with the Nigeria Integrated Water Resources Management Commission (NIWRMC) to support application of lessons and approaches from KYB to roll-out of the Commission's strategic plan at national level. This is focused on effective coordination, planning and management for the equitable, economically efficient, and environmentally sustainable use of water, land, and other environmental resources of the shared national and international water resources.
To help catalyse change in water resources management in Nigeria under the leadership of the Commission, the purpose of the Second Phase is integrated river basin management approaches demonstrated through field projects and scaled up to Nigeria-wide and transboundary initiatives focused on sustainable resource management that delivers pro-poor livelihood benefits.
