The overall objective of this activity is to reduce environmental pollution in targeted areas through a collective impact approach. The specific purposes will be determined by the Recipient in consultation with USAID.

The Theory of Change for this activity is: IF USAID supports a collective impact approach to address targeted environmental pollution issues, this will result in policy change, policy implementation, and behavior change that contribute to reduced environmental pollution.
