Resume:

‘Strengthening citizens’ influence on WASH in the newly devolved governance system in Mombasa and Taita Taveta counties in Kenya’. Det planlagte projekt løber over 3 år med et samlet budget på 2.992.158 DKK. Formålet med projektet er at styrke lokalbefolkningen / civilsamfundsorganisationer (rights holders) og (i mindre grad) lokale beslutningstagere (duty bearers) i amterne Mombasa og Taita Taveta i Kenya, således at de kan advokere for og sikre bedre vand- og sanitetsforhold. Projektet søger at styrke rights holders og duty bearers i den decentraliseringsproces, som inden for de sidste par år har flyttet meget væsentlige WASH opgaver og ansvar til amterne (counties). Omdrejningspunktet i projektet er således kapacitetsopbygning, fortalervirksomhed og god regeringsførelse indenfor WASH-sektoren målrettet civilsamfundet og i mindre grad lokale beslutningstagere.
