Launching the Advocacy Strategy Workshop Facilitator's Guide

Published on: 20/08/2020

The ABCG Freshwater Conservation and WASH Advocacy Strategy Workshop Facilitator's Guide will be launched on Thursday, August 20, 2020

IRC and Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG) Members, Conservation International and the Jane Goodall Institute, jointly developed the Freshwater Conservation and WASH Advocacy Strategy Workshop Facilitator's Guide.

Reduction of watershed degradation and pollution and thereby improvement of the health of freshwater ecosystems is one of ABCG's 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. By linking conservation and development activities, communities and policymakers can mitigate impacts and provide compensation for biodiversity loss to deliver positive conservation outcomes.

The guide lays out steps for conservation, health, and development practitioners to develop an advocacy strategy to design messaging and activities to urge donors, policymakers, and colleagues of the need to unite and join forces for conservation and health. This great tool will be launched in a webinar presentation on Thursday, August 20 2020.
