NRLA Forums

1st Northern Regional learning Forum

Water and Sanitation actors in Northern Uganda face unique challenges ranging from salty basins to grass thatched housing that limit access to safe and clean water as well as promotion of household rainwater harvesting technologies which would curb the water scarcity in the region. On 28th -29 th March 2012, the actors equaled the challenges by organizing the first, learning event constituted by 4 different learning journeys to Lango and Acholic sub-region. The forum, that was held at Acholi Inn Hotel Gulu was initiated by Technical Support Unit 2 and Uganda Uganda Water and Sanitation NGO Network with support from Triple-S Uganda, Care International, World Vision International, Catholic Relief Services, Network for Water and Sanitation Uganda, African Medical Foundation, Joy drilling deliverance church, CARITAS Gulu and Drop in the Bucket. It brought together over 70 players comprised by District Water Officers and NGO's under Uganda water and Sanitation NGO NETWORK.
