Commitment to Action

Water Secure, Resilient Communities in Kenya & Uganda

Commitment by

Wetlands International

In 2015, Wetlands International and its partners committed to improve water security and reduce water-related disaster risks in Kenya and Uganda, countries in which approximately one-third of the population lacks access to clean water, and two-thirds to improved sanitation. Over three years, Wetlands International will identify three hotspot watersheds where communities are vulnerable to water stresses and natural disasters and will strengthen civil society by training at least 180 individuals to advocate for their needs, with a specific focus on vulnerable groups such as downstream water users and women and girls. In addition, Wetlands International will engage key stakeholders at the watershed, national and international levels to make informed choices about investment plans, such as irrigation and dams in the region.
