© 2018 Climate Justice Fund: Water Futures Programme

Scottish Government Climate Justice Fund Water Futures Programme led by Strathclyde University

The Government of Scotland has been supporting a programme of work for several years (2011 to date) with the clear objective of supporting the Government of Malawi to achieve compliance with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6).


The Programme is implemented through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Government of Malawi and the University of Strathclyde.


This CJF Programme started in 2011 initially targeting the district of Chikwawa to develop information led decision making by the District Government. In 2015, seven additional districts across the Lower Shire were engaged to scale the approach and widen access.


The activities of the Programme are focused into 4 distinct work streams that support key activities to underpin the knowledge base and capacity of the Government of Malawi. These are:


Mapping complete in the whole county. Progress on Borehole Forensics, SDG indicators and NWRA implementation


Mapping of 8 Districts to be completed. Improved work streams framework: Mapping, Capacity, Policy and Research. 


Work on Borehole Forensics and drilling practices. Engagement with Water Boards


Several training in Hydrogeology, IWRM and permaculture. Continues visits to Scotland and Malawi


Programme extended to 8 Districts and 2019 (CJFII). Further engagement with MoAIWD.


Second mapping of water points and risks to water points completed. Evaluation of temporal changes to groundwater resource resilience evaluated.


 Permaculture, Drilling Practices and implementation of IWRM approach evaluated.  Global conference on Transboundary Aquifers held in Glasgow 


First mapping of water points completed. Evaluation of groundwater sources and management.  


 Project starts in Chikwawa District (CJF I)
