The Governance, Water and Sanitation Program (PROGOAS) supports local governments in the planning and accountability cycle, and in the water and sanitation domain oriented towards improved service provision.

The project organizes citizens to be actively involved in the decision-making processes about local issues and public resources, and to claim their right to the provision of quality services. Duty bearers are supported to be responsible and accountable, thereby improving public services with a focus on the water and sanitation sector.

The project interventions are oriented to support the capacity development of local actors from government, community and private sector on planning, management and maintenance of water and sanitation infrastructure. During its 9 years of implementation, the project developed several innovative tools now used by local actors helping them assuming their roles and responsibilities to deliver quality water and sanitation services.

Water

The most vulnerable communities suffer from dirty and scarce water. Annually we help up to 500,000 people get new access to drinking water and basic sanitation.

Governance, Peace & Migration

In many countries where we work, men and women are unable to claim their rights and participate actively in decision-making processes.
