WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
FAN gets local organisations involved in international policy processes that influence water management and sustainable development. Both ENDS has been closely involved in FAN's work since 1999 and has been sitting on the network's Advisory Council since 2002. Together, Both ENDS and FAN created FANCA, the Central American network that has since become one of Both ENDS' 16 partners in the MFS Programme (DGIS). In addition, Both ENDS and FAN are working together to achieve recognition of the Human Right to Water by the World Bank.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
FAN and Both ENDS share the vision that local actors should be directly involved in policy discussions, at a local, national and, very importantly, an international level. Both ENDS has an extensive network of organisations that can offer an effective contribution to discussions, from their local viewpoints, while FAN has the tools to prepare them for international discussions. In addition, Both ENDS and FAN lobby together at international conferences, such as the triennial World Water Fora. So doing, local actors have a podium at international meetings.
