BRIDGING RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND DEVELOPMENT:
SUSTAINABLE WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN EASTERN AFRICA

In December 2006 the EAWA workshop “Bridging Research, Technology & Development: Sustainable Water Resource Management in Eastern Africa” was held in Mombasa, Kenya. It was attended by more than 130 participants drawn from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Sudan, Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The sponsors of this workshop were the Africa Water Facility (AWF) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC). The organizers of the workshop were the Eastern Africa Water Association (EAWA), Africa Water Facility (AWF), Egerton University, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW).

The main theme of the workshop was to bring forth research application and reduce the gap between research and development. The structure of the workshop included acquiring knowledge from experts through plenary presentations, discussions and also excursion visits. The aims and activities formulated for this workshop therefore brought forth a nouvelle conceptual model, which focuses on an inclusive approach where all stakeholders are involved in the translation of research findings to development processes in Eastern Africa.
