Planning for Resilience in East Africa through Policy, Adaptation, Research, and Economic Development (PREPARED)

This was a six-year programme with the overall goal of strengthening the resiliency and sustainability of East African economies, trans-boundary freshwater ecosystems, and communities.

PREPARED targets three key priority development challenges of East Africa and of the US Government:

  1. biodiversity conservation / natural resource management (NRM) and sustainable access to water,

  2. sanitation and hygiene, and

  3. Climate Change.

The programme sought to:

  • Improve Climate Change adaptation technical capacity, policy leadership and action readiness of regional institutions.

  • Strengthen resilient and sustainable management of biologically significant transboundary freshwater ecosystems in the East African Community region.

  • Enhance resilient and sustainable drinking water supply, sanitation, and wastewater treatment services in the Lake Victoria Basin.
