An Integrated Vision for Health in Uganda’s Budongo-Bugoma Corridor 

The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG) invites you to participate in a virtual webinar on Thursday, July 27, 2017 from 8 to 9 am EDT/3 pm EAT. Dr. Peter Apell from The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) will provide an overview of their work on integrated Freshwater Conservation and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in northern Uganda. This program is one of the pilot sites currently applying the ABCG Freshwater Conservation-WASH Integration Guidelines in a context where population growth poses a threat to local watersheds and vulnerable megafauna. 

This webinar is the second in a monthly series hosted by ABCG’s Freshwater Conservation-WASH Community of Practice (CoP). The group’s aim is to provide a collaborative platform and space where global health and conservation professionals can share knowledge and expertise while connecting and organizing over how to resolve common issues. ABCG brings together health, development and conservation practitioners working in Africa on projects and policies looking to improve biodiversity conservation and human health. By linking freshwater conservation and WASH in field sites in South Africa and Uganda, ABCG members hope to see reduced watershed degradation and pollution, and improved health of freshwater ecosystems. ABCG is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID.)

We hope you will join us for this participatory learning opportunity and add your voice to the dialogue!
