The baseline project and the problem that it seeks to address: The baseline project and the problem to be addressed have not changed. However, the strategy of the project was fine-tuned to be a catalyst to mainstream IWRM and stakeholder involvement and participation into local, national and binational watershed management. Multi-level dialogue and cooperation is fundamental to confront the key issues in the TDPS. Therefore, the Strategic Action Programme will be built through a bottom-up (watershed based) highly participatory process involving the key stakeholders. The number of outcomes and outputs were modified to have more precision and detail on the intervention. The PIF included the following elements:
Component 1 - two outcomes and four outputs,
Component 2 - three outcomes and one output,
Component 3 - one outcome and one output, and
Component 4 - three outcomes and one output.
The outcomes were reduced from eight in the PIF to six in the PRODOC, and the outputs were increased from six in the PIF to 11 in the PRODOC. In addition, minor changes were done in the amount of resources allocated to the four components. USD201.250 were moved from components 3 and 4 to increase the funds in component 1 (i.e., add USD142.050) and component 2 (i.e., add USD119.200). In component 1 more resources were needed to sustain a highly participatory process to build the SAP. In component 2 the additional resources will be used to document and disseminate the learnings from the pilot projects and DPC to support their implementation.
The key incremental actions will be to support: (i) The preparation of a binational TDA and SAP to have an agreed framework of action. The SAP will be an updated version of what is currently called the Binational Masterplan, but incorporating (a) the conceptual basis of IWRM, (b) new considerations (e.g., climate change, biodiversity conservation), and (c) the involvement and collaboration of public and private key stakeholders at the local and national levels. (ii) The strengthening of the binational institutional arrangements agreed by Bolivia and Peru to manage the shared water resources.(iii) The promotion of multi-level dialogue and direct involvement of key stakeholders in each of the 14 watersheds that conform the TDPS. (iv) The generation of learnings on IWRM within an endorheic system that will be useful at the local, national and international levels.
