Where next for the Sengwer and the EU WaTER Project?

The violence the Sengwer have been experiencing at the hands of KFS has continued, but a series of subsequent events and reports have emphasised that a radical restructuring of the EU funded WaTER projects is required before it can be resumed. 

Qu’adviendra-t-il des Sengwer et du projet WaTER de l’UE ?

Les violences subies par les Sengwer aux mains du KFS se sont poursuivies, mais plusieurs événements et rapports qui ont suivi les faits ont souligné qu’une refonte complète du projet WaTER financé par l’UE est nécessaire avant qu’il ne puisse reprendre.
