Wetlands and Headwater Management in the Nile Basin

In collaboration with the International Headwater Association and the Nile Basin Initiative, Wetland Action is involved in a series of studies of the role of headwater wetlands and land use changes in the Nile Basin, with experience from Ethiopia and Rwanda. Awareness of the hydrological role of wetlands for basin functioning is being raised through this work. A recent output was an assessment of the Baro-Akobo sub-basin.
