About the Kunene River Awareness Kit

The Kunene River Awareness Kit

The Kunene River Awareness Kit (Kunene RAK) is a bi-lingual English and Portuguese on-line and CD-ROM based tool designed to support capacity development in PJTC and raise awareness for transboundary water issues in southern Africa, and particularly in Angola and Namibia.

This central focal point for knowledge related to the Kunene River basin serves as a hub for information management and dissemination for PJTC. The structure of the Kunene RAK (themes and chapters) was defined through participatory processes involving stakeholders from the two basin states of the Kunene River basin.

Outputs from technical activities of the ongoing programme managed by PJTC will be integrated as they become available along with the results of other relevant studies.

Included within the Kunene RAK are self-learning resources, supported by interactive visualisation tools, maps, documents. The intended audience for the Kunene RAK is the broad spectrum of stakeholders in the Kunene River basin, including government agencies, river basin managers, NGOs and educational establishments, as well as the international community.


The development of the Kunene River Awareness Kit was funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in delegated cooperation with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), and implemented by the German Cooperation Agency Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) under their Transboundary Water Management in SADC programme.
