The Transboundary Rivers of South Asia (TROSA) (2017-2022) is a regional water governance program working in the transboundary basins of the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) and Salween basins in South and South- East Asia. TROSA is supported by the Government of Sweden through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Embassy of Sweden, development cooperation section in Bangkok) and co-implemented by Oxfam Novib, the Oxfam in Asia regional platform and more than fifteen different partners in these basins. Adopting a human rights-based approach (HRBA) to water governance, TROSA aims to address the vulnerabilities among river-dependent communities and promote inclusive governance at the basin and regional levels.

Programme purpose

TROSA’s main goal or impact statement is “Reduced poverty of marginalized and vulnerable communities through increased access to and control over water resources”.

The program is organised around four inter-linked objectives aiming to support and influence changes among four actor groups: governments, private sector, civil society and women leaders:

Objective 1: Improved policies and practice of governments that protect the rights of river basin communities to water resources.

Objective 2: Improved policies and practice of private sector and other actors that respect the rights of river basin communities to water resources.

Objective 3: Strengthened capacity of river basin communities and civil society to influence trans-boundary water resources management.
And one cross cutting objective:

Objective 4: Amplification of women’s profile and influence in dialogues and decision-making on water management and water infrastructure.

The applicant is expected to submit the application through the recruitment website: by October 21st, 2021, at 23.59 GMT+7. For any questions, please write in to [email protected]
