Improvement of the health of freshwater ecosystems is one of the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group’s (ABCG) key focus areas. In support of the USAID Biodiversity Policy, the ABCG FW-WASH task is linking freshwater conservation and water, sanitation, and hygiene (FW-WASH) to proactively engage diverse, local community actors in advocacy efforts for improved policies. Please join us as we share lessons learned from one year on on-the-ground implementation of advocacy strategies and how these plans adapted to COVID-19.
By linking conservation and development activities, communities and policymakers can mitigate impacts and provide compensation for biodiversity loss to deliver positive conservation outcomes.
The ABCG FW-WASH task collaborated with IRC, a WASH think-and-do tank, to develop a Freshwater Conservation and WASH Advocacy Strategy Workshop Facilitator’s Guide. After one year of pilot testing advocacy strategies developed in South Africa and Uganda the teams reflected on their experiences to inform the report, “Translating Projects to Policies: Lessons Learned Applying the FW-WASH Advocacy Strategy Methodology in South Africa and Uganda”.
