The GVP has developed a number of different models and tools for the assessment of the effects of diverse bio-physical as well as socio-economic and institutional changes have on the hydrological cycle as well as water allocation within the Volta Basin.
To ensure the sustainable use of the developed decision support technologies in the Volta Basin the GVP, together with the United Nations University (UNU) and the International Water Management Institute (IMWI), has formed a consortium that facilitates the transfer of technologies into the basin.
The consortium organizes the necessary capacity building activities that will enable local partners to make use of the GVP-products. In a series of workshops and trainings stakeholders from government agencies, research institutes and civil society in Ghana and Burkina Faso are trained in the use of different decision support tools and the use and maintenance GVP’s (meta-) databases.
