This is the first webinar presentation of the FW-WASH Community of Practice whose overall aim is to establish integrated learning and knowledge sharing between Freshwater Conservation (FW) and WASH practitioners in a supportive and collaborative environment.  This presentation provides an overview and implementation status of the ABCG II Global Health Task Area: Linking Freshwater Conservation and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (FW-WASH). The task group aims to generate information on the impacts of infrastructure developments on watersheds in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as the impacts of freshwater conservation in meeting WASH goals.  The presentation describes project experiences from South Africa (Conservation International (CI) and Conservation South Africa, CI’s local affiliate) and Uganda (the Jane Goodall Institute) that are building on tools developed under ABCG I.
