Working With Indigenous Organisations and Women Guardian Groups
Guardians of the River: An Online Course Talk with Daniel Kobei, Ikal Angelei
In this session, we speak to Goldman Prize winner Ikal Angelei and to Daniel Kobei, director of Ogiek Peoples Development Programme about how international actors can work with Indigenous guardian organisations such as Friends of Lake Turkana and OPDP in Kenya. We will focus on the role women groups play in the guardianship of waters in the east African context, particularly in terms of an escalating crisis in the region surrounding the invasive nature of hydropower corporations, energy firms and state actors.
This event is part of the Guardians of the River online course, offered by Advaya and Guardians Worldwide.
