Aidenvironment builds dams with communities in Ethiopia #WorldWaterDay

The theme of this year’s #WorldWaterDay is “Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible”. A great opportunity to highlight the potential of this resource! In many projects, Aidenvironment uses the subsurface to store excess water from the wet season for use in the dry season. Even though the water is stored out of sight, it can for instance be abstracted through shallow wells or help maintain the baseflows of rivers.

Improved livelihoods through integrated water resources management

Climate change has exerted substantial effects on water cycles worldwide by changing the seasonal pattern of water resources. Agago District in Uganda is particularly affected, where water flows are expected to exceed socio-ecological thresholds for hydrological cycles. This impacts ecosystems and people’s livelihoods and well-being. Coupled with environmental degradation due to flooding, deforestation and excessive tree cutting, crop and cattle farming become less productive, which intensifies the vulnerability of local populations.
