South-South Cooperation Case Study: Sudan - South Africa Collaboration for IWRM: “Some for All Forever" 2010-2014
United Nations Environment Programme

The collaboration began with a study tour to South Africa where Darfuri water professionals learnt about the post-apartheid reforms to water management. The ideas resonated well and a second tour was undertaken with political decision makers from across the three Darfur states. These tours, and the vision statements produced by the delegates, became the platform for the development of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Darfur in particular and in Sudan in general and also supported the process that has now progressed to the development of the first major participatory catchment management project in the region.

Environmental Audit of the Sites Impacted by the "Probo Koala" Toxic Waste Dumping in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire - Site 8: Agboville
United Nations Environment Programme

On 19 August 2006, the ship Probo Koala off-loaded 528 cubic meters of liquid wastes in the port of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The material was transferred onto tanker trucks operated by a local contractor, and dumped in twelve different locations around the city. In June 2012, UN Environment received a formal request from the Government of Côte d’Ivoire to undertake an independent and scientific environmental audit of the sites that were impacted by the dumping of wastes of the Probo Koala.
The Government wished for UN Environment to determine whether the sites continued to pose risks for the environment or for public health, and to make recommendations about additional or corrective clean-up measures that would need to be carried out in case contamination was detected.
