We are delighted to inform you that WOTRIndia's Deputy General Manager, Harish Daware, has been engaged in capacity building and technical training on watershed development in #Malawi, in southeastern Africa. These training sessions to officials of the Emmanuel International Ministry, an NGO in Malawi and those in Department of Land Resource Conservation took place between April 22 and 26, 2019. The village of Khole, where these concepts taught by WOTR- Watershed Organisation Trust have been employed, has emerged as a model village and is inspiring other projects in the region, like those in Chivalo and Machhinga.
Such joint efforts are also critical in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) like, SDG2 - agriculture and food security, SDG6 sustainable water management, SDG13 combating #climatechange (esp. adaptation) and SDG17 - global partnerships for sustainable development.
