Our project in Kenya focuses on the Lake Naivasha basin - to support improved basin management by providing better data on the condition of rivers in the basin, and the key pressures to local water management organisations.
We have combined forces with IDH (an international NGO headquartered in the Netherlands) and their Sustainability Initiative Fruit and Vegetables (SIFAV), by joining their project in Ica, Peru. The project focuses on strengthening the catchment’s water cycle and biodiversity, reducing soil runoff, and improving livelihoods of communities.
WWF South Africa is coordinating a programme of activity with support from Courtauld 2030 signatories and the Tesco-WWF partnership.
By supporting our new collective action programme in Southern Spain organisations can help us improve the sustainability of water management there, dramatically reducing water-related risks in the main fruit and vegetable production areas, specifically Andalusia, Murcia and Valencia.
We have collection action projects across the UK - Medway (Kent), Cam, Ely & Ouse (East Anglia), Wye and Usk (West of England and Wales) and Tamar (South West England).
Taking collective action
The Courtauld 2030 Water Roadmap (' A Roadmap Towards Water Security for Food and Drink Supply') is a practical response to the growing problem of water stress.
With WWF, the Rivers Trust and leading food and drink businesses, we’ve created collective action projects that work on a localised level, dealing directly with issues in key sourcing areas for food and drink.
Each project will follow a similar model – but with specific activities relevant to the local context.
Engaging in Collective Action for Water Stewardship – Meet the Projects
If you missed the webinar, find out more about the projects on our Meet the Projects recording.
This is your opportunity to find out more about:
- The business benefits of taking collective action on water risk
- Why urgent action is needed
- How you can get involved
What does getting involved mean in practice?
- A multi-year financial contribution to core costs, to enable successful project management and coordination
- Further additional funding for project implementation costs (specific to each catchment)
- Attendance at project meetings & a commitment to developing and delivering the project plan.
- Promoting the project and the benefits of collective action, internally and externally within your industry sector and beyond.
