Empower: ARCOS facilitates mechanisms for capacity building and adoption of IWRM in trans-boundary, national and regional freshwater ecosystems. We also support the mainstreaming of Integrated Water Resources Management in national and international development agenda and strategies.

Act: ARCOS works with communities to find better options/technologies to address the challenge of water access and sustainable use in selected river basins and landscapes. We work with communities and other stakeholders to protect and sustainable manage water catchment areas for maintaining water ecosystem services and human well-being.
