One Health Framework: Integrating Freshwater Conservation and WASH in South Africa’s Mzimvubu Catchm 

The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group invites you to participate in a virtual webinar that will highlight Conservation South Africa’s work in the Mzimvubu Catchment. This region spans over two million hectares of the poorest rural areas of the country’s Eastern Cape Province, provides water to approximately one million people, and supports more than 2,000 plant and animal species unique to this area.
Nolu Kwayimani, the WASH/One Health Program Manager for this initiative, will provide an overview of the “One Health” framework that integrates water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) activities with freshwater conservation, improved livestock farming, and restoration efforts for improved outcomes. By empowering local communities to manage and benefit from their natural resources and supporting local governance structures that enable sustainable livelihoods, “One Health” aims to secure water futures for all water users. This project draws on ABCG’s FW-WASH integration guidelines and monitoring and evaluation framework to measure the added value of integrated freshwater conservation and WASH programming. 
This webinar is the third 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. 
We hope you will join us for this participatory learning opportunity and add your voice to the dialogue!
