ABCG hosted a workshop for WASH and conservation NGO professionals and donors to increase awareness and understanding of the value of integrated programs, and to gather input for the development of Freshwater Conservation and WASH Guidelines. This effort was led by ABCG members, Janet Edmond and Colleen Vollberg of Conservation International (CI) and Sarah Davidson of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and supported by a working group made up of coalition members. The following objectives were developed for the workshop:
- Provide the space for shared learning on the integration of WASH and freshwater conservation
- Critically review the Theory of Change
- Determine principles, key ideas and draft recommendations to include in the Guidelines
- Develop a joint plan for drafting the Guidelines
