Water management is a critical issue in Bangladesh. The availability of freshwater is essential for consumption and nutrition, household use, health and livelihood generation as well as food security. Access to clean water is limited however, and water ecosystems are in varying states of degradation. External drivers for effective water management include population growth, natural resources, land management, social, economic and political development and climate change. As such, an integrated approach to water resources and water ecosystems is essential for achieving sustainable development solutions.

The programme is based around five components that are built on existing projects of UNDP, ILO and WFP.

The programme brings together relevant UN system activities across UNDP, WFP and ILO to contribute to UNDAF pillar-5 outcome 1 i.e., “By 2016, populations vulnerable to climate change and natural disasters have become more resilient to adapt with the risk.” For this, primary focus is given to offsetting the impacts of natural disasters on livelihoods through disaster risk reduction and asset generation, as well as improved livelihood options through sustainable natural resource management and environmental governance. Impoverished areas and marginalized communities, especially women, are prioritized due to their limited resilience and heightened state of vulnerability.
The new UNDAF 2012-2016 serves as the key basis for this joint programme and in particular, UNDAF Pillar 5 (Climate Change, Environment and Disaster Risk Management) has provided the strategic guidance for framing the key results for achieving the common outputs and outcome. A total of USD 7.89 million will contribute to existing projects across the agencies that are working towards the UNDAF pillar-5 outcome –“By 2016, populations vulnerable to climate change and natural disasters have become more resilient to adapt with the risk.” The five components of the programme will be led by three participating UN agencies to contribute to the achievement of:
UNDP, as the lead agency of UNDAF Pillar 5, is responsible for overall coordination of the programme implementation in partnership with the two other Participating UN Organisations i.e. WFP and ILO under UNDAF Pillar 5. This programme will be implemented using a pass-through funding modality. The programmatic and financial accountability rests with the Participating UN Organisations, which manage their respective components of the Joint Programme.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
