The PPI project is funded by UK Department for International Development (DFID) and TIRI. The project aims to increase capability, responsiveness and accountability on the part of local civil society and key local state institutions – responsible for solid waste management, water, and sanitation– that positively impacts the achievement of MDGs in the targeted localities of Nablus, Hebron, Al-Ram, and Jericho. In its third year of implementation in Palestine, ARIJ shall work directly with local civil society to raise their capacities in articulate the needs in the targeted local districts. During the first year, ARIJ trained local civil society to collect data and advocate their cause. In the second year, local civil society had assembled data using Citizen Report Cards, then analyzed and disseminated their findings through Media and Public Hearings to hold local authorities accountable for their service delivery. Now in the third year, ARIJ is going to bring the civil society and the local authority together to work jointly on finding solutions for their problems. As a result, the organizational capability of key local state institutions to formulate and implement pro-integrity and pro-poor policies shall improve and their organizational capability to research, monitor, train others and advocate for pro-poor policies is also expected to increase.
