In a bid to demonstrate the importance and applicability of integrating water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) with integrated water resources management (IWRM), IRC Uganda has produced a twelve-minute documentary, set in Rwenzori Region.
The documentary highlights key issues in IWRM and how they impact on WASH. It draws on the perceptions, experiences, lessons learnt and challenges shared by different actors at village, sub-county and district level. Specifically, the experiences are collected from community members most affected by the WASH/IWRM issues: Ntoroko, Kamwenge and Kabarole districts. The WASH/IWRM case is built by juxtaposing communities that have suffered the effects of inadequate WASH services as a result of poor IWRM practices against those that have adopted good IWRM practices leading to improved WASH services.
