In this video, UN Environment shows how communities in Darfur are at the heart of defining key resource issues and development priorities. In the path to recovery, planning that is community driven promotes healthy relationships because it helps people define their shared needs through processes of consultation – a process that brings people together, creating a space for conversation and connection. It also creates an atmosphere where people all feel they are involved and have the opportunity to benefit.
In the end, inter-communities not only have a mutual ownership of their natural resources but continuity in the protection of natural resources is likelier as well. El Morgran is a community that benefitted from the ‘Wadi El Ku Catchment Management Project’. The project has been implemented jointly by UN Environment and Practical Action and is funded by the European Union.
