Community Mobilization

Community Mobilisation and Institutional Strengthening

Community Mobilization 01As the starting point of the program, communities in the polders are organised into Water Management Groups (WMGs) at village level and Water Management Associations (WMAs) at polder level, with an aim to create effective cooperatives that are in a position to formulate community priorities. The capacity development of the cooperatives will build on the training approach and Toolkit developed in the IPSWAM and Southwest Area project. At least 30% women participation is ensured as general as well as executive committee members in the WMGs/WMAs which is a major breakthrough in women empowerment.
