Since its establishment in 2018, the Protecting Lake Hawassa Partnership (PLH) is working in the Ethiopian Hawassa sub-catchment to mitigate the environmental and social risks affecting the lake. Through the partnership, various activities have been implemented in the lake Hawassa sub-catchment, leading to improvements of both environmental and social aspects.
The stewardship approach promotes collective action to ensure the sustainable management of natural resources. The partnership achievements of PLH are motivating its members and inspire others to join the stewardship journey.
