WASH: Strengthening Communities for Climate Resilience
Aidenvironment, under its brand RAIN, will present one of its successful projects during the Water Resource Management for WASH session on August 24, as part of World Water Week.
As a member of the WASH Alliance International, and one of the implementers of the WASH SDG programme, Aidenvironment will show how this project, by applying the principles of IWRM and 3R (Recharge, Retention, Reuse), it constructed a wetland by elevating a road, and thus secured access to water, as well as to other essential economic / social services (market, hospital, school) for a rural community in Northern Uganda.
Join us on 24 August, 10:00 – 11:30
