Caritas Zambia in collaboration with CSO DAN, is implementing the “Action to Accelerate Decentralisation through Advocacy” project with support from the USAID Local Impact Governance Project. The project intends to deliver on two objectives: 1. Galvanize CSO-DAN member organizations to carry out advocacy on decentralisation; 2. Promote opportunities for dialogue and collaboration among key stakeholders in the decentralisation sector.
The “project is premised on the fact that while the current government has shown commitment to decentralization, some of the existing laws and policies do not align with the constitutional provisions on decentralisation and thus create challenges and bottlenecks in fully implementing decentralisation. The project is therefore riding on the positive political will and commitment so far exhibited by government to realize the decentralisation policy objectives and accelerate decentralisation policy implementation. The project is biased towards accelerating decentralisation by influencing policy and legislative reform through advocacy. As part of its advocacy agenda, Caritas Zambia working in collaboration with CSO-DAN secretariat will commission a series of policy briefs on decentralisation issues as highlighted in the developed policy briefs and propose possible solutions to address the gaps identified.
