- The USP of our project is to involve communities in river health decisions
  • river health decision: monitoring health, evaluating, improving/maintaining
  • entry point = communities: gender, marginalized, water-user groups
---- stakeholder meetings + discussions

  • Involvement of women

- Entry Points
  • call for proposal focusing on gender equity
  • capacity building through training and research mentoring
  • empowerment through communication
  • cross-basin learning, cross-boundary dialogues

- The USP of our project is involving communities in river health decisions -> monitoring, evaluating, and improving. Fora more effective impact, all sections of the communities will be invited (strongly encouraged) to attend the various meetings and discussions, which will ultimately result in the development of an indicator system for evaluating river health, monitoring these indicators, and arriving at potential solutions to improve.
