Stories of water harvesting, pollution, scarcity and misuse among others are not new in developing countries.

And in Uganda and several other countries in Eastern and Southern Africa region (ESAR), where UNICEF estimates that about 157 million people are not connected to a clean and safe water distribution system, and thus need to use external water sources, stories of this nature are made frequently.

But whereas several stories of this nature are made, not all of them are told. Some never make it to the media.

In the link below, WaterSan Perspective brings you the picture story of water harvesting, pollution, scarcity and misuse among others in Uganda which Fredrick Mugira produced with support from the CSE Media Fellowships Programme for the Global South.

Water Journalists Africa

Water Journalists Africa (WJA) is the largest network of journalists reporting on water in the African continent. It brings together some 700 journalists from 50 African countries. It was established in 2011 in Cape Town South Africa with support from the UN-Water Decade Programme on Advocacy and Communication.

WJA is legitimately registered as an NGO with Uganda’s National Bureau for NGOs (NGO Bureau)

It is governed by a board of governors and an advisor body. The two bodies meet regularly to review the organization’s programs and projects.
