Dept. of State - Built Water Storage in South Asia. Deadline: 7/5/22. $1.28M Available.
Built Water Storage in South Asia
The Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs (SCA) of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out the “Built Water Storage in South Asia” project to build technical and policy capacity to develop and manage built water storage in the region. Climate change is reducing water resources in South and Central Asia, which creates need for more water storage and improved water management. Shrinking glaciers, over-reliance on groundwater, changes in monsoon cycle, and increasing droughts –combined with growing populations and developing economies demanding more water for energy and agriculture–have highlighted water stress, threatening sustainable development and societal stability. Increased water storage (including built storage, groundwater and nature-based solutions) combined with improved water management could strengthen regional water security. Policy, engineering, and scientific communities may not fully recognize the scope and impact of these storage gaps. This project will build the technical and policy capacity of governments, water management professionals, civil society organizations, and other relevant actors to address these water resource challenges.
