Community Capacity Building for Sustainable Wetland and Catchment Management

Supported by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Ethiopia, Wetland Action partner EWNRA (Ethio Wetlands and Natural Resources Association) has undertaken a programme of wetland awareness and training on sustainable wetland management in the West of Illubabor Zone, South-west Ethiopia. This especially looks at the contribution of wetlands for food security.

Between 2005 and 2008¬†EWNRA’s Wichi Integrated Wetland and Watershed Natural Resources Management Project aimed to build capacity within local communities to manage wetlands and catchments sustainably.
