Wetlands International champions and enables action to sustain and restore wetlands. We do this currently in 80 countries through our network of 20 offices in all continents. In our role as thematic partner of the Dutch WASH Alliance (DWA), we stand for the recognition of ecosystems as critical elements of natural water infrastructure and as well as in WASH delivery. We therefore facilitate advocacy, understanding and uptake of practical implications. This gives definition, guidance and ‚Äòhand and feet‚Äô to the environmental / ecological (E) sustainability dimension of the FIETS sustainability approach handled by DWA. In fact Wetlands International acts as the ‚Äòenvironmental representation‚Äô partner within the Alliance. We are actively working with the Dutch WASH Alliance in Bangladesh, Mali and Uganda. In Mali, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia we are also active under other Alliances.
