Description and results


The project aims to enhance participation in democratic processes, strengthen the ability of rural populations to hold their governments to account, and increase the responsiveness of public institutions with respect to water supply needs and sustainable management of water resources in Nicaragua. Project activities include: (1) providing training, technical and legal support to local municipal staff and community water committee networks; (2) water well infrastructure; (3) disseminating tools (smart phones, data plans and a customized app, etc.) to rural populations in the water scarce northwestern region of the country; and (4) training local government officials and the facilitation of networks among water stakeholders to increase responsiveness of public institutions to the need for sustainably managed potable rural water systems.
