WLRC conducts social mapping and stakeholders’ analysis conducted in the Upper Awash Catchment. The WLRC-GCRF team conducted a reconnaissance survey that focused on the human-ecological systems in the Akaki sub-basin.

The team has conducted field work on two rounds on the Akaki sub- basin from July 18-19/2022 and July 26 – August 04/2022 as part of the activities of the GCRF Water Security Hub project. In the social mapping and stakeholders’ analysis the team identified four research sites in the Akaki sub-basin for household survey in which the communities are very much vulnerable to various disasters including flooding, water pollution, landslide and the like. After reconnaissance survey and site identification, training was given to field data collectors on the interactions of humans and ecology and the overall social mapping systems around the Akaki basin. The team is planning to conduct participatory social cartography and social mapping along the Akaki River in the selected research sites.
