August 2012 – The Government of Zambia received a € 950,000 grant to develop, test, and adopt updated guidelines to program, design, finance, build and monitor multi-purpose small dams. Resources mobilisation activities are also an important part of the project to ensure that the dams be scaled-up. The project is expected help rural communities build resilience to climate variability through improved water storage capacity. The water is expected to increase water security for fisheries, irrigation, domestic use, and cattle.
