Environmental Management in Refugee Situations Workshop

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) | July 2006

InterWorks facilitated a three-day workshop on Environmental Management in Refugee Situations in Entebbe, Uganda from 25–29 July 2006. Participants represented UNHCR, government and implementing partners. The workshop was based on training materials developed by InterWorks. Key learning objectives included: describing potential environmental impacts of refugee populations; identifying UNHCR’s role in addressing these impacts; describing the environmental assessment processes and tools; identifying several environmental management strategies; and preparing a community environmental action plan.

Thank you for the good approach to the sessions (participatory) and good interpersonal relations between facilitators and participants.
