Description
This publication is a reflection on approaches that stimulate responsiveness in citizens and communities – based in their strengths – and enable more confident expressions of their civic voice and agency. This is done through the lens of the Australia Africa Community Engagement Scheme (AACES), a community-led water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) initiative implemented in South Africa and Zambia by Oxfam Australia and Oxfam Great Britain, respectively. This report is the second volume in a series of publications focussed on identifying principles and practices for effectively facilitating the active civic engagement of communities and civil society organisations. The first volume, Facilitating Civic Engagement through Consultation: Learning from local communities through the NHI-Accountability Project in South Africa, published by Oxfam Australia in February 2016, draws directly on the experience of the organisations and communities that participated in health policy reform in South Africa. 
Transcript
  Learning from local communities through work with Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in South Africa and Zambia FACILITATING ACTIVE CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: FROM CONSULTATION TO PARTICIPATION A publication supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Oxfam Australia, and The Alliance Centre for HIV, Health and Rights of Key Populations  ‘Traditionally, in development, those in health focus on health; those in education focus on education; those in WASH, on WASH. But as development workers we need, instead, to trigger those things that will stimulate the community to take action, not only on one narrow issue but on the many that concern them…’  – David Mwamba, WASH Programme Manager, Oxfam GB in Zambia  Published by Oxfam Australia in South Africa Author: Ricardo WaltersEditor: Caitlin MartinCover photograph: Alexia Webster/OxfamAUSPhotographs (South Arica): opening spread and page 69 by Matthew Willman; page 106 and 113 by Max Bastard.Photographs (Zambia): page 34 by Matthew Willman; page 22, 55 and 93 by Alexia Webster; page 12 and 114 by Ricardo Walters.Design: Design for development, www.d4d.co.zaPrinting: Hansa PrintISBN: 978-0-620-71326-9April 2016Copyright: Oxfam and the Alliance Centre give permission for excerpts from this book to be photocopied or reproduced provided that the source is clearly and properly acknowledged.
