Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) in Indigenous Development



Nana Ama Addae-Boahene worked with the Economic Cluster of the Water Rights Research Consortium to learn about advocacy in general and develop a potential advocacy strategy First Nation communities can use to campaign for clean water and sanitation.

The main objective of her placement was to assist and learn about confronting the Government inertia on insufficient clean water and sanitation in Garden Hill and Nischiwaysihk Cree Nation. She met with organisations that campaigned for the rights of indigenous peoples, such as Amnesty International. She presented her findings at the Create H2O and Water Rights Conference at the University of Manitoba.
