Watershed empowering citizens programme

Waterhead project header image

Watershed aimed to build the capacity of civil society organisations in six countries: Kenya, Uganda, Mali, Ghana, Bangladesh, India and also at international level, for evidence-based lobbying and advocacy on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) issues. This five-year partnership (2016 - 2020) contributed to the Sustainable Development Goal for universal access to water and sanitation services and water security by making the voices of citizens heard and strengthening governance and accountability.

The partnership activities specifically focused on the identification and inclusion of the marginalised in WASH and IWRM governance.

Initially the partnership was called WASH IT!, but changed its name to Watershed - empowering citizens.
