Resume:

Dansk Folkehjælp (Danish People’s Aid - DPA) og KAALO Aid & Development (KAALO) fra Garowe i Puntland, Somalia, har sammen udviklet projektet ‘Strengthening WASH Structures and Dialogue in nine villages in Puntland, Somalia’ (SWASD). Projektet løber over 2 år og har et samlet budget på 2.484.462 DKK. Formålet med projektet er at styrke lokalbefolkningen i ni landsbyer i Puntland ved at kapacitetsopbygge landbyernes vandkomiteer, således at disse bliver bedre til at organisere sig, vedligeholde vandinfrastruktur og undervise de øvrige landsbyboere indenfor WASH. Samtidig vil kapaciteten hos lokale beslutningstagere også blive styrket, så de har større forståelse for og evner til at forbedre de lokale vand- og sanitetsforhold. Vandkomiteerne og de lokale beslutningstagere vil desuden blive trænet i fortalervirksomhed med fokus på WASH, samt konfliktløsning, som er et vigtigt redskab i skrøbelige situationer.
