Territorial water governance in the Gulf of Fonseca Region. The overall objective / impact of the program is to contribuite to the development of a system of integral and inclusive territorial water governace in the region of the Gulf of Fonseca

The territorial water governance program in the region of the Gulf of Fonseca (PGHT-RGF) contributes to create spaces for dialogue and peaceful conflict management through water issues in a context of widespread fragility and conflict. The emphasis is on governance and the functioning of the institutional framework for a comprehensive and sustainable management of water resources in the Gulf of Fonseca of the Republic of Honduras. The program complements the initiative of the public sector in the region with the reactivation of the Council of Regional Development and the proper functioning of the Round Tables of Food Security, Climate Change Risk Management and Local Economic Development, within the framework of the Plan of the Nation (2010-2022).
The program measures aim to strengthen the National Plan for Water and Sanitation in Honduras 2014-2018. In addition, the program is supported by the pertinent legal frame-work: the General Water Law, the Framework Law Drinking Water and Sanitation, the Mu-nicipal Law, the Land Use Law and the Law of Forests, Protected Areas and Wildlife. The program is complementary with other programs of the SDC portfolio in the southern re-gion of Honduras, such as: “Nuestra Cuenca Goascorán” and “SurCompite”. The pro-gram is aligned with national and regional policies and plans, with potential strategic alli-ances with other development partners and with the Global Water Program.

The general objective of the program is to contribute to the development of a system of integral and inclusive territorial water governance in the region of the Gulf of Fonseca, ensuring the availability of water in a sustainable and equitable manner. To achieve this objective, the following two outcomes are foreseen:
• The five watershed councils in the Gulf of Fonseca reach agreement and make deci-sions about integral management of water resources, linked with national policies.
• Within the framework of the watershed councils, the local governments in the region of the Gulf of Fonseca lead the process of water management, strategic investments, and the application of best practices for conservation, use and sustainability.

The intervention strategy of the program seeks to impact on 800,000 inhabitants in 45 municipalities located in the five watersheds of the Gulf Region. At the meso level the program will lead to the establishment of a territorial water governance system in the Gulf of Fonseca region, provoking strategic policy changes and ensuring fulfilment of the law. The work at the meso level will be linked with policy work national and implementa-tion at local-municipal level. At this level, the program will strength the territorial institu-tional structures represented by the watershed and sub-watershed councils, so they as-sume leadership and press for application of the General Water Law.

The program promotes strategic water investments that help bring together public and private stakeholders in the region. It also integrates the public investment cycle, the management of municipal investment in watershed development plans. It is also essential to involve the private sector for co-investment and financial leverage to promote citizen and business co-responsibility in the governance of water resources.

The mandatary will be responsible for managing resources and to facilitate the imple-mentation of the program in its first phase for the period 2017-2020, which amount is CHF 7.7 Mio (includes funds for project and service costs). This responsibility shall be coordi-nated with the different stakeholders and SDC. Driving the program and facilitation pro-cess will create greater awareness among the population, promoting consensus and partnerships between authorities and the involved stakeholders. The program provides for three stages of implementation during the period 2017-2027 (12 years).

Request for Proposal (RFP): Consultancy to support the Consolidated Strategic Information Guide and the EMTCT Validation process: 2015/HTM/HIV/002

World Health Organization | Published March 3, 2015  -  Deadline March 13, 2015
cpvs

The HIV/AIDS Department of WHO is finalizing and rolling out the consolidated HIV Strategic Information (SI) guide for the health sector, containing all aspects of SI into one document, including core data to generate from routine M&E systems, surveillance activities, HIVDR and toxicity monitoring. These components have formed a global set of  10 SI indicators, 50 national and additional indicators for global, regional and country guide. Information needs along the cascade of HIV care were reviewed, and new international guidance has been developed, especially in the area of monitoring linkages from diagnosis to HIV care, monitoring implications of the shift to B+/B under different service delivery scenarios, emphasis on retention and adherence, and monitoring impact. Generic tools (registers, monthly reporting forms, etc.) will also be updated, and the most efficient way to collect this information (e.g. some data may only need to be extracted and reported once a year to the national level, but in a routine annual reporting form; some data may be best collected through a survey of representative number of facilities) will also be reviewed. Once the consolidated HIV Strategic Information guide is published, it will be disseminated with specific regional and country support for implementation. Standard materials and PPTs would facilitate the dissemination of the consolidated M&E guide as well as other M&E related documents.
