Watershed - empowering citizens is a strategic partnership designed to strengthen policy and advocacy capacity of civil society globally. We will focus on the linkages between Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Water Resources Management (WRM). The programme is active in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mali and Uganda. Other partnerships will be developed in The Netherlands and at international level.

Watershed is a partnership of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, IRC, Simavi, Wetlands International and Akvo.

The long-term objective of Watershed is improved governance for WASH and WRM so that all citizens, including the most marginalised, can benefit from sustainable services. The immediate goal is to enhance citizens' ability to obtain information so that civil society organisations (CSOs) can advocate for change based on reliable, accurate data.
