Working hand in glove with the Ministry of the Environment as well as the Ministry of Water Resources and Energy, GWP-CAF organized a workshop aimed at educating the media on how to produce informative articles while sensitising the populations on issues regarding water, climate and the environment.

A workshop on national media mobilisation for the popularisation of policies, laws and texts adopted on water, environment and climate in Cameroon, held in Douala from the 19th to the 10th of June at Hotel Prince de Galles. This workshop aimed at giving proper training to the media for them to be able to produce informative articles in the domain of water, climate and the environment.

On the other hand, the media was also expected to master and apply the policies, laws and texts related to water, climate and the environment. Also, knowing the way forward when it comes to institutional communication will be a plus as they are expected to work hand in glove with the communication unit that will definitely direct them to competent technicians so as to avoid unnecessary wrong information. This will be helpful as most of the population nowadays intervene in the domain of water without respecting texts. Therefore, causing the water control Brigade to apply sanctions on the later.

These sanctions are put in action because some people get involved in water supply without following or respecting texts and regulations.

If the population gets to know and understand the texts, they will be able to bring up their complaints to competent institutions for their problems to be resolved. Reason why, GWP-CAF working hand in glove with the Ministry of Water Resources and Energy and the Ministry of the Environment decided to carry-on with the training so that the media may be able to inform and educate the population in a more basic way while using the appropriate words for them to understand better.
