Abstract

Background and Significance of the topic: Water security is one of the greatest health, ecological, environmental, and human rights challenges of our time. Africa sits at the epicenter of this quandary, with the need to build resilience into already over allocated water resources. This chapter focuses on Sub-Saharan Africa and stresses the inter-related physical and social dimensions that underpin water security. The chapter highlights the value of engaging stakeholders through meaningful dialogue towards outcome oriented and adaptable governance strategies. Methodology: A desktop review was conducted to provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities to advance water security in Africa. Application/relevance to systems analysis: While Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) has been adopted to various degrees around the world, it is still in its infancy in sub-Saharan Africa. Additional research, ground-truthing, and on-the-ground field experience are necessary for tailoring IWRM to meet the individual and collective water security challenges that confront Sub-Saharan African countries. Policy and/or practice implications: The feasibility of applying evidence-based decision-making is enhanced by technology developments and advances in data collection, validation, curation, and interoperability. Discussion and conclusion: Water security is a global imperative and sub-Saharan Africa can benefit from ‘lessons learned’ to implement short-term and long-term strategies.
