Sudan and the Water Sciences Programmes of UNESCO

Abdin Salih, Mohammed Ombadi


UNESCO's contribution to enhance the knowledge base, research and capacity to sustainably manage water resources of the world is continually growing for a period close to seventy years (1948 to date). This paper summarizes the initiation of this programme in 1948, leading to the major project in Arid Zone which was followed by the IHD and then the famous current IHP which was enforced by the UNESCO water family that included as well as the UNESCO-IHE and WWAP. The paper gives a brief introduction of these initiatives and examples of the benefits gained by Sudan in the various stages of these initiatives. It also encourages further enhancement in Sudan’s interaction with the UNESCO water family.
