Wetlands are a common resource and this translates to them having a number of stakeholders. For any changes intended on the wetlands to be made successfully and sustainable, it is paramount to advocate for support from the key stakeholders.
They may also prove useful in giving in kind support during the implementation of the outlined strategies and their respective activities, for this reason Ecofinder Kenya will therefore work to shine light on the Wetlands to the stakeholders at a local, regional and national level.
The main aim here will be to outline the environmental services that the said wetlands provide, the challenges that they face, the actions that should be taken to curb this challenges, the Village level efforts and to also ensure that they are aware of how they can be of help to ensure the success of those efforts.
The activities that the project team intends to engage in to actualize this strategy will include:
- Establishing a lake Victoria village Wetlands forum
- holding Quarterly meetings of the wetland forums
- working together with personnel of the institutional stakeholders during the implementation process of the project
- developing joint action plans with the participants in the wetland forums in all the wetland areas
