Legislators in Botswana advocate for the Integration of P-E linkages into Water Sector Policies

[January 2013] In 2012 PEI Botswana began its engagement with legislators at the local level to raise awareness and build capacity regarding the poverty-environment development nexus. Later in the year, when the draft water sector policy was presented to the parliament the legislators intervened and demanded that the policy better reflect P-E linkages. Engaging with legislators at the sector and local level has shown to be an effective way of mainstreaming P-E linkages into national planning and is an approach that PEI Botswana wishes to take further during the extension phase of PEI in 2013.
