GWPEA Met Stakeholders to Collect Data for Capacity Needs Assessment

In the spirit of building resilience to climate change, GWPEA conducted consultations with different stakeholders in the three catchments of Uganda (Aswa, Awoja, Maziba) where EURECCCA Project is being implemented

“Enhancing Resilience of Communities to Climate Change through Catchment Based Integrated Management of Water and related resources in Uganda (EURECCCA)” is executed by the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) and implemented by Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS). The Global Water Partnership Eastern Africa is supporting in the implementation of component three (capacity building and knowledge management) of the EURECCCA project.

 To conduct the task, GWPEA uses participatory and consultative methodologies to create an atmosphere of ownership of the interventions. The methodologies are useful in gathering critical information in the needs assessment, putting together a well thought through training plan and ensuring that the thematic training components are well captured and understood by the stakeholders.

 To this end, from early April 2019, GWPEA team and consultants travelled to the 3 catchments to meet stakeholders made of community members, local leaders, civil society members to gather their views on capacity needs. The team is now compiling a report to submit to the Ministry as a deliverable. The same report will inform the development of training modules in specific thematic areas, as defined by the project
