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 second 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 has trained local civil society to collect data and advocate their cause. Now in the second year, local civil society is going to assemble data using Citizen Report Cards, then analyze and disseminate their findings through Media and Public Hearings to hold local authorities accountable for their service delivery. 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.
