Annual Report WECF 2010

WECF provides a network, platform and tools for global citizens, women and men, who want to work together for a fair, healthy and safer world for all. Will you join us?

19.11.2011




WECF has been working since the first Earth Summit in 1992 for a healthy environment for all. With the global economic crisis persevering in 2010, the accelerating climate change and persistent poverty and inequality it has been and is even more important that we gather forces as a network together with our partners, to meet the challenges facing us in the years to come; to continue to empower and support women and men all over the world to gain access to safe and sustainable water, sanitation, energy and food, whilst respecting their human rights and promoting gender equality as a tool of development. We’re ready for this challenge.

In 2010, despite the financial crisis, WECF has continued to increase its outreach to share the visions and priorities of women and their communities with decision makers and the general public around the world, particularly through our websites and facebookpages reaching several hundred thousand visitors.

Through our local partner projects in low-income rural communities, we have continued to demonstrate the best practices for improving livelihoods whilst reducing environmental damage, with 2000 beneficiaries of innovative energy solutions including solar water heaters and solar fruit driers, and over 35,000 accumulated beneficiaries of our sanitation and water supply projects.

Through our capacity building and training programmes, several hundred local trainers are now able to continue to share their newly gained skills to increase the number of people who benefit from these affordable and innovative solutions. Our member and partner organisations have been very active sharing lessons learned through our online tools such as Intera and Toni-finder, but most importantly through ‘open space’ skills share meetings.
