More than 95 per cent of the project participants especially WOMEN suffer the indignity of open defecation. Lack of Safe & Affordable Water facilities. The focus of local government on improvement of WATSAN facilities is not satisfactory. Insufficient funds available at Local Government level to address WATSAN issues. People are not aware of schemes available in WATSAN sector. Nobody takes Accountability and Responsibility for failure in achieving the anticipated results in WATSAN. Summary of the project specific reference to Our Situation If we are to meet poor peoples demands for clean water and adequate sanitation, and if the Right to Water and Sanitation to be realized, The Local Governments will have to be more responsive and accountable to poor people. The best way we can do this is to work with Governments and Civil Society Organizations especially WSHGs/VWSCs to help enable the voices of those without WatSan to be heard, and then for

governments to ACT on what they hear. Outcomes of the Project Outcome : 1 MARI is capacitated and emerged as knowledgeable and skilled organization to influence the implementation and evaluation of WASH programmes in Warangal District and also established good linkages with other CSOs and Networks. Outcome : 2 MARI is able to effectively engage in decision making processes affecting the WASH sector in general and particularly focusing on Govts commitments in different political platforms (eg. SACOSAN-IV), New Guidelines of National Drinking Water Mission,

etc. Outcome : 3 Tribals and womens organizations are effectively and collectively demanding governments accountability and transparency to allocate more funds and efficient utilization of allocated finances for improved water and sanitation services.

The project needs lot of information about the inside functioning of the concerned Govt. departments and we need to strategically work with them to understand the same before beginning the questioning or confrontation process. Key Learnings. Governance and Transparency in the WATSAN sector is possible only when people demand for high quality services. But this was beyond imagination of the local tribals. Exposure to one of the model villages made them realized what they are lacking and how they are put to suffering. Media sensitization and regular news on WATSAN issues generated a conducive environment for project implementation. Key Learnings Though local tribal Gram Panchayats are suppose to provide WATSAN services, their capacities and resources are very low. Hence there is a need to work with them rather than simply mobilizing people to

question or demand for services. Donor Visit_WaterAid Auditor Media coverage Thank you P. Raja Mohan & Team (GTF) MARI - Warangal
