Resume:

Dansk Folkehjælp (Danish People’s Aid - DPA) og Community Integrated Development Initiatives (CIDI) fra Kampala, Uganda, har sammen udviklet projektet ‘Citizens’ Action on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (CA-WASH)’. Projektet løber over 3 år og har et samlet budget på 2.889.158 DKK. Formålet med projektet er at styrke lokalbefolkningen (inkl. lokale folkeskoler) og civilsamfundsorganisationer i Nakawa-bydelen i Kampala, således at de kan advokere for bedre vand- og sanitetsforhold. Samtidig vil kapaciteten hos lokale beslutningstagere blive styrket, så de har større forståelse for fordelene ved forbedrede vand- og sanitetsforhold samt de love og regler, som skal sikre borgernes rettigheder på det område. Kernen i projektet er således kapacitetsopbygning og fortalervirksomhed indenfor WASH-sektoren målrettet civilsamfundet og lokale beslutningstagere.
