4. Community-Led Watershed Advocacy
Riverside action groups will be formed in 4 riverside areas to link with local, regional and national non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other stakeholders concerned with watershed management of the Ayeyarwady River. The advocacy efforts include launching a public awareness campaign that incorporates complex and interconnected issues that riverside communities are facing, in addition to presenting sustainable harm free solutions for preserving the natural ecosystem.
Year One Results – Although this component will begin in year two, some preparation took place in the first year as Airavati staff are building skills and their knowledge base in order to facilitate training.
