ADVOCACY INITIATIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT (AID)
AID Sierra Leone in partnership with UNDP Sierra Leone carried out an awareness raising campaign on Adaptive Capacities of Water Services to Climate Change in both Kono and Kambia Districts.
Despite the efforts of relevant institutions like WASH-Net, Ministry of Water Resources, Environmental Protection Agency, Local Councils and couple of others, climate changes still negatively impacts water services provisions in the project localities.
This project among other things developed the knowledge-base of the various state and non-state actors on what is feasible and essential to reduce the bad effects of climate changes to water services provision, and also promoted synergies and healthy cross-fertilization of ideas and cooperation amongst them.
It is the project’s hope that concurrent development of the capacities and awareness-raising of both the duty-bearers and rights-holders will go a long way to finding all-embracing workable solutions to the ever-increasing threat of harsh climate changes to water resources in the respective project locations.
