IPIECA is pleased to invite you to a members-only webinar, providing an overview of GIZ’s practical on-the-ground actions to deliver Water Stewardship for the oil and gas sector.

The International Water Stewardship Programme (IWaSP), implemented by GIZ, aims to engage and enable government institutions, corporates and communities to form watershed partnerships to address shared water risks. The programme has already set up partnerships with more than 15 companies, including Total and Tullow Oil from the oil and gas sector.

The webinar will be of relevance to IPIECA members with an interest in water, biodiversity and ecosystem services as well as social responsibility issues. The complex dynamics in delivering stewardship and the various needs/interests of the partners, the natural environment and the broader community will be explored.

The webinar will be presented by representatives from GIZ who are part of the IWaSP scheme and local operators from Total and Tullow Oil.

Speakers: Richard Boak (Tullow Oil); Godfrey Lukwago (Total); Jan Verweyen (private sector liaison officer of IWaSP); Jacqueline Lehmann (IWaSP, Uganda); Anne Marie Ran (IWaSP, Kenya), and Mary Namukose (IWaSP, Uganda).
