Sustainable Irrigation water management and River-basin governance: Implementing User-driven Services.
Read more on the SIRIUS website.
In SIRIUS, IRMCo was involved in different capacities. In addition to the overall management of the project, including financial reporting, we also led two of the Workpackages (WPs).
In WP1, focused on multi actor processes, we guided the process of participatory stakeholder involvement and workshops throughout the duration of the project. Within this context we developed a manual for community involvement, gender equality and the implementation of Public Participatory GIS. (PPGIS). This provided the basis for a participatory multi actor assessment of the SIRIUS services in WP6. Here, we developed a framework guiding the set up, test-implementation, training, and evaluation of the SIRIUS services in each of the 9 pilot areas.
Furthermore, we assisted our partners in Egypt with the research in the pilot area in the Nile Delta, by collecting and analysing data, and keeping regular contact at field level with the local irrigation services, institutions & the local community.
