Background & Description

LASOONA has planned implementation of four (4) years development-oriented project in selected areas of Swat and Shangla districts of KP province. The main focus of the project is to improve governance and local development processes. The project aims to contribute towards a progressive, democratic, inclusive and empowered society, whereby all development actors including communities, civil society, local government representatives and local authorities carry forward the local development agenda in a synergized and coordinated manner.Both Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and local authorities (LAs) are recognized in the action as key players in its two pillars being ‘Agents of Change’ through building their effective linkages and enabling regular dialogue within a jointly recognized and owned space while supporting the emergence of an inclusive civil society platform and mobilization of LAs and elected bodies. Sustainable development goals are more likely to be achieved if citizens and communities are engaged by LAs through inclusive decision-making processes. On the basis of the changed political circumstances in KP, it is considered that effective community mobilization can be achieved more effectively by institutionalizing interactions between communities and Local Government (LG) systems, structures and processes at the lowest tiers of the governance. Community development initiatives will be integrated with the local government system at Village, UC and Tehsil level (district and tehsil councils’ wards). By adhering to the principles of transformative participation and allocative efficiency, the project will bring communities closer to the state and vice versa. The action intends to contribute to improving governance in sectors identified by communities during right-based situation analysis namely health, education, agriculture, WASH and DRR recognized as socio-economic empowerment services which are the key contributors to an improved Food Nutrition Security status of the targeted communities.

It is 3 days training course designed for the office bearers and active members of the village council organizations(VCOs). The objective of the training is conceptual clarity about organization development, record keeping, participatory development, capital formation and linkages development with line departments and other organization and development projects working in the area.
