Conserving Wetlands for People and Nature in Kenya
The Watershed – Empowering Citizens Programme is an initiative that aims to build the capacity of civil society organizations to lobby for evidence-based Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and integrated water resource management. As one of the strategic partners behind this effort, Wetlands International is implementing projects using this approach in Kenya’s Kajiado and Laikipia counties.
On February 23, 2018 Julie Mulonga, Program Manager at Wetlands International, shared about how working with civil society can mobilize communities to claim their water and sanitation rights and empower them to participate in decision-making. This webinar was part of a series webinars hosted by ABCG’s Integrated Freshwater Conservation-WASH Community of Practice whose aim is to provide a collaborative platform where global health and conservation professionals can share knowledge while connecting and organizing on how to solve common issues.
