What is WaDImena?
WaDImena is a five-year multi-donor funded program (2004-2009) coordinated by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and in partnership with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). WaDImena contributes to effective water governance by enhancing water-use efficiency, equity and sustainability.
