CRS' "Watersheds for Well-Being" ("Bassins versants pour le Bien-Etre," or B4B) project works with the local government and community organizations to identify and protect important water points. Through B4B, CRS trains farmers to protect their hillsides and water sources through tree planting and sustainable agriculture. The project provides clean water to communities, and CRS' local church partner trains communities in water management, hygiene and sanitation. B4B's first year has been a pilot year to establish a successful model for good watershed management. The challenge now is to scale up and improve upon these advances to ensure that communities are able to reduce their risks from water-caused disasters.
