GCRF Accountability for Informal Urban Equity Hub

Lead Research Organisation: Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
Department Name: International Public Health

Abstract

More than half of humanity currently lives in urban areas and 68% are projected to do so by 2050. One in three urban dewllers, and an estimated 881 million people in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) now live in informal settlements, colloquially known as 'slums', where they have inadequate, insecure housing and limited services. These settlements are often the only option for people working in the informal sector, and existing evidence shows that residents are often highly resourceful, resilient and innovative in navigating the problems they face daily. However, they also face challenges that appear intractable: multiple health and well-being risks and vulnerabilities, related to an unhealthy environment, insecurity and social marginalisation. Informal urban settlements are rapidly changing, with in and out-migration and shifts in social norms, as well as being economically and socially unequal. Failures to provide services, infrastructure and mechanisms for redress by national and local governments are often linked to the presence of multiple actors and organisations including non-governmental, private and criminal organisations. These conditions can act as an incubator for various forms of violence (e.g. political and gender-based), which threaten well-being.

Our Hub will work with the most marginalised dwellers in informal urban settlements, including through federations of 'Slum/ Shack Dwellers', linked to Hub partner SDI. We will support them in identifying their priorities, making their conditions visible to key service providers related to health (both governmental and non-governmental) across a range of sectors, and working with identified allies amongst these actors to develop better mechanisms for accountability and more responsive services. We will test this approach to addressing this intractable challenge, and pilot the priority interventions developed. Many conventional research methods and routine information systems are ill-suited to these complex and rapidly changing contexts and are not sufficiently linked to action. We will use innovative participatory methods, including analysis of data collected by informal urban dwellers themselves, to gain a deep understanding of health risks, vulnerabilities, and priorities and service access barriers. We will bring insights from a range of disciplines including social and political sciences and epidemiology to develop innovative metrics that can better reflect these realities and inform policy and practice development and evaluation.
Learning and data from these innovative approaches and methodologies will be brought together to form a tested set of methodologies that identify promising mechanisms for improving accountability and service responsiveness to promote health and well-being for the most marginalised. We will communicate the new concepts, evidence and methodologies to national, regional and global governmental and non-governmental organisations through our networks and partnerships to maximise the potential for improved policies, strategies and services.
Our Hub is uniquely placed to realise our vision. We bring together partners with long standing relationships, and develop new collaborations that add value in terms of expertise and networks. IDS and University of Glasgow bring core strengths in participation and urban governance; epidemiology and inter-sectoral action respectively. LMIC partner institutions have strong national, regional and global influence and reach, including with informal urban dwellers (e.g. SDI and APHRC), with national and international non-governmental organisations (e.g. LVCT Health, BRAC ) and with national governments (e.g. COMAHS, SLURC, The George Institute). LSTM has an outstanding track record in leading successful multi-partner collaboration for health impact. We will collectively build interdisciplinary capacities across the Hub and use this learning to benefit the next generation of researchers.

Planned Impact

Our Theory of Change anticipates impact across three domains - understanding, relationships and action - and at three levels - local, national and global.

At the local level, marginalised informal urban dwellers in study sites in Bangladesh, India, Sierra Leone and Kenya, and beyond through our responsive challenge fund, will benefit through:
a) Understanding: Research that builds their capacity to analyse their own well-being and health, priorities and potential allies for action, and opportunities to make demands to key actors in governance arrangements, as the basis for developing accountability mechanisms;
b) Action: Design and piloting of improved accountability strategies, mechanisms and more responsive services in local study sites to promote their well-being and health.
c) Relationships: Development of committed, trusting relationships and alliances with key governance actors will that will extend beyond hub programmes, with continuing impact

Our partners have demonstrated the benefits of such work with informal urban dwellers, and this is a core competency of Slum and Shack Dwellers International (SDI), who have driven changes in the recognition of informal settlement dwellers that have resulted in improved state provision in India.

At the local level, providers (formal and informal) of health-related services across different sectors, will benefit through participation in defining priorities and interventions for more accountable and inclusive services. For example, in Bangladesh's highly pluralistic health system, BRAC has worked in informal settlements to broker partnerships between formal and informal providers for referral for improving the quality of menstrual regulation services, which are a priority for poor, urban women.

At local, national and global levels, government stakeholders such as city authorities, and Ministries for health and urban planning, and non-governmental (not for profit) organisations with a remit to provide services to informal dwellers will benefit through:
a) improved relationships with urban informal dwellers;
b) improved understandings of their realities, challenges and resilience;
c) relevant tools and approaches for systematic action to improve their well-being.

We will promote these impacts through strong partner linkages to governmental actors, and non-governmental programmes (such as BRAC Urban Development Programme in Bangladesh, LVCT Health programmes in Kenya and BRAC International programming). BRAC urban development programme has expressed a strong demand for the research.

At the global level, marginalised informal urban dwellers beyond the study sites in LMICs will benefit through the reframing of debates on urban informal health and well-being leading to new conceptualisations and step changes in policies at global, regional and national so that these better reflect and respond to local realities. Our partnership is uniquely placed to achieve this impact. Partners have demonstrated how their approach can be taken to scale nationally and globally. For example, work by the SDI federations alliance in India has led to both city sanitation policies and state policies for relocation of slum dwellers affected by urban infrastructure projects. The railway relocation process in led by SDI in Mumbai also produced templates for similar relocation process in Kenya. We are also well-placed to influence global level discourse and policy. For example, Sheela Patel (SDI) sits on the highly influential UN Habitat working group, and LSTM convene the Health Systems Global Thematic Working group on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict Affected states. The IDS-led Ebola Platform for Action brought together key partnerships to ensure maximise impact from learning and was awarded the prestigious (ESRC) Outstanding International Impact Prize. COMAHS have strongly influenced the health reconstruction agenda in Sierra Leone both post-war and post-Ebola.

Title POSTER: Safeguarding in research and practice on accountability, health and well being 
Description This poster outlines the approach that ARISE has taken to creating a safeguarding policy and associated management systems. For ARISE, safeguarding concerns are not limited to sexual abuse and exploitation, but include physical and psychological abuse, exploitation and neglect. Vulnerable people are those who may be at risk of abuse or neglect due to the actions (or lack of action) of another person. Safeguarding concerns may emerge for a range of potential reasons. However, power relations, such as those related to gender, class, disability or control over resources limit or enable people's abilities to protect themselves from abuse and also to safeguard others. In ARISE we argue that, as with research ethics, safeguarding should not be seen merely as a procedural check box process. Instead safeguarding must be an iterative, ongoing learning journey that is critical, reflective and inclusive of vulnerable people. Ultimately safeguarding processes need to be situated in a critical understanding of power relations, committed to changing them and promoting equity. 113 Views to date.

Title POSTER: Shades of informality: Working with waste pickers in ARISE 
Description A downloadable digital poster: Part of the ARISE work in India is steered through the George Institute for Global Health, India. It is focused on 'waste pickers and waste picking communities' which represent urban informality at its most marginal. The work aims to understand and describe how accountability arrangements can be strengthened for people living and working in informal urban spaces in order to improve equitable health and well-being. India's informal waste economy consists of socially, occupationally, and economically differentiated categories of 'waste people' - an integral part of the 'waste-to-resource' value chain.

Title Photo Story 2021 Cockle Bay 
Description In Sierra Leone, central Freetown, nested on the bank of Aberdeen Creek lined with mangroves, is the informal settlement of Cockle Bay. It has been growing ever since the 1940s. During the 1990s, Cockle Bay's population increased rapidly, when people from rural areas fled civil conflict in search of security, employment, and affordable housing within the capital. Since then, the community has been expanding not only in geography due to the reclaiming of land from the sea through mud and stick banking, but also in the population leading to the emergence of four new sub settlements as Hilet view, J-mata, Kola tik and Mafengbeh. This photo story represents a snapshot of what daily life is like for residents of Cockle Bay and was gathered during our recent field work activities.

Description At the local level, ARISE has begun to strengthen the capacities of urban marginalised people to inclusively analyse and prioritise their health and well-being needs. For example, in Freetown, Sierra Leone in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in Nairobi, Kenya and in Mumbai in India, ARISE has supported partners to recruit, train and work with 'co-researchers' from informal settlements, who have been involved in all aspects of the research, from tool development to analysis. Emerging outcomes for co-researchers include pride and increased confidence and understanding of new methodologies to identify and share their priorities, as well as appreciation of new information that can be used to inform dialogues with governance actors. For further detail in Freetown and Dhaka, please see our online Story of Change, using the link provided.
At the city level, ARISE has contributed to strengthened networks between community-based organisations, Non-Governmental organisations and governance actors in health, which have begun to increase government responsiveness to communities' priorities. For example, in Mumbai, India, the NGO, SPARC, with support from ARISE, has worked with the Federation of Slum Dwellers and a network of women's groups (Mahila Milan) to initiate dialogue with District Tuberculosis officers to improve access to information and care for tuberculosis among relocated slum and pavement dwellers. In Nairobi, Kenya, ARISE supported contributions by partners SDI Kenya and LVCT Health to the Informal Settlement sub-group to the National Technical Working Group on the COVID-19 response. This drew on community-led data collection by Muungano wa Wanavijiji (the Federation of Slum Dwellers in Kenya), and contributed to increased responsiveness within local governance systems to the needs of people living in informal settlements. Specifically, County Government took steps to improve Community Health Volunteer provision, and adaptations were submitted to Ministry of Health policy on home care and quarantine in informal settlements.
At the institutional level, ARISE has influenced policies and guidelines across institutions in our partner countries and in the UK. Recognising the critical importance of safeguarding in research practice, the ARISE hub co-developed understandings of and approaches to safeguarding and shared this process through publication jointly authored by all Hub members. Institutional systems and processes provided an opportunity for mutual learning among all ARISE partners, in the North and the South. The process produced multiplier effects, with ARISE experience and knowledge influencing safeguarding guidance and policy beyond the ARISE project in the UK, India, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, and Kenya. For example, ARISE researchers from The George Institute India, the College of Medicine and Applied Health Sciences, Sierra Leone, and LSTM, UK contributed to UKCDR Guidance on Safeguarding in International Development Research. Learning from ARISE has also influenced the development of Safeguarding policy and strategies at LSTM, the University of York, SDI Kenya, LVCT Health, CoMAHS, and TGI India. Beyond ARISE partner institutions, the ARISE process has contributed towards safeguarding policy in the Case Management Pillar of the Sierra Leone COVID-19 response as well as other large research consortia, including the African Cities Research Consortium.
Exploitation Route As the ARISE Hub work facilitating relationships between researchers, communities, Non-governmental organisations and government actors matures, we envisage that our research outcomes will be taken up at several levels:
1. Within communities, ARISE will support co-researchers to use their strengthened capacities to contribute towards our intended impact of Increased capabilities and connectedness of urban marginalised people directly enhances wellbeing by increasing social inclusion.
2. At city and national levels, ARISE will promote uptake by Municipal and National authorities, as well as other major governance actors (such as NGOs) to contribute towards our intended impact of Uptake of evidence of priorities creates policy that reflects marginalised people's priorities.
3. At the global level, we envisage use of safeguarding guidance, policies and strategies by researchers to ensure ethical research that protects researchers, vulnerable research participants and their communities from harm, contributing towards the GCRF outcome of Changes in research and innovation capabilities for challenge-focused, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral work.

Description At the end of year 2 of a 5-year programme, the ARISE Hub is not yet in a position to identify any impacts as specified in our Theory of Change. We have, however, identified ARISE contributions towards emerging outcomes. These relate to social impacts and SDGs 3: Good Health and Wellbeing, Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower women and girls (specifically Target 5c: Adopt and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls at all levels and target 5.2 Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, and Goal 11:, Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (specifically Target 11.3: enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacity for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management). Strengthened relationships between networks of community organisations, non-governmental institutions and governance actors on health issues in India and Kenya. For example, in Mumbai, India, ARISE supported a collaboration between SPARC (an NGO), the Federation of Slum Dwellers in Mumbai, and Mahila Milan -a network of women's groups - which engaged with Municipal District TB officers to identify actions to improve information, diagnosis and care for tuberculosis among urban marginalised people. This action emerged from data collection by the Federation of Slum Dwellers that identified high levels of tuberculosis amongst people relocated from slums and pavements to so-called 'relocation colonies'. Increased capabilities of urban marginalised people to inclusively analyse their health and wellbeing needs in Bangladesh, India, Kenya and Sierra Leone. ARISE partners have recruited, trained and worked with 80 female and 39 male community co-researchers from 11 communities. These are community members who are invited to collaborate with professional researchers and development organisations throughout the Community Based Participatory Action Research (CBPR) process. Co-researchers include people often excluded from the research process, such as those living with disabilities. Co-researchers were trained and included in tool design, data collection and analysis and express a sense of increased capabilities to analyse their health and wellbeing needs and to use this information to discuss opportunities with government and development actors. Increased capabilities of researchers to co-produce knowledge with urban marginalised people in Bangladesh, India, Kenya and Sierra Leone. For example, some researchers in all ARISE contexts have been trained and gained experience in collaborating with community based 'co-researchers' for the first time. This includes for example a new and unique collaboration between community-based organisations (CBOs), a development NGO and two research institutions with specialities in urban development and health in Freetown. These increased capabilities have the potential to create sustained community-based research beyond the life of the Hub. Strengthened relationships between urban marginalised people and governance actors and Increased responsiveness within local governance systems, within the COVID-19 response in India and Kenya For example, in Nairobi, Kenya, new collaborations between ARISE partners and NGOs LVCT Health, and SDI-Kenya and County Government on the Informal Settlements and COVID-19 sub-committee to the Ministry of Health COVID-19 Taskforce influenced COVID-19 responses. Information on Community Health Volunteer locations and coverage in Mukuru Special Planning Area was used in planning the County Government COVID-19 response. The collaboration also contributed to proposed amendments to the Home-based care and quarantine policy to respond to specific challenges in informal settlements (not yet activated as anticipated spike in cases has not yet occurred). Further emerging outcomes related to the GCRF Theory of Change outcome: Changes in research and innovation capabilities for challenge-focused, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral work in DAC countries, as well as making an ODA-relevant contribution to gender, inclusivity and equality. The ARISE hub co-developed understandings of and approaches to safeguarding. Institutional systems and processes provided an opportunity for mutual learning among all ARISE partners, in the DAC and the UK. However, the process itself produced multiplier effects, with ARISE experience and knowledge influencing safeguarding guidance and policy beyond the ARISE project in research and service provision institutions in India, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, and Kenya.

Through GIS mapping all health facilities have been mapped geographically including the community health systems. This maps have been used as evidence to show the existing gaps and will assist the county government health department to plan for the improvement of health services within Mukuru. Through the SPA the community was given a platform by the county government to give their views on the existing public health services within their areas these community gave a case of a public health facility that had very poor services and even discriminated the residents. This made the county department of health to change the management of the facility and re established the health facility committee that has representation from the community of Mukuru members including the youth,women and village elder. This has led to improvement in their service delivery at this facility.
 
Description IDS, UK: Annie Wilkinson: SSHAP COVID-19 Distancing ESAfrica brief

Policy Influence Type Citation in other policy documents
Impact Informal settlement policy brief, has influenced policy practice. Has informed WHO and UN guidelines. It has informed the development of new Inter-Agency Standing Committee guidelines for COVID-19 in low resource contexts - see annex 1. UN-Habitat had wanted it to be standalone guidelines but WHO had been developing some on low resource settings in parallel and so in the end they were combined, with annex 1 pointing out the special considerations for informal urban settlements. This brief reports on attitudes and practices relating to physical distancing measures in Eastern and Southern Africa in the context of the current global COVID-19 outbreak. Where relevant, it also includes insight and learning from the Ebola outbreaks in West Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It sets out practical considerations for the formulation of communication strategies and messaging on the subject of physical distancing related to COVID-19, taking into account the numerous challenges regarding implementation and mitigation of harmful effects that exist in the region, and cognisant that distancing may, in some settings, have adverse effects and contribute directly and indirectly to COVID-19 related deaths. This brief was developed for the Social Science in Humanitarian Action Platform (SSHAP) by Anthrologica on request of UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office. It aims to provide practical recommendations for response partners working in the COVID-19 response across the Eastern and Southern African context. The brief was reviewed by colleagues at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UNICEF ESARO, UNICEF CASS, IFRC and the Institute of Development Studies. It is the responsibility of SSHAP.

PI Contribution SDI India, and their partners SPARC, India, have held multiple meetings with local slum dweller organisations. Supported the residents in taking up the challenge of accountability in terms of waste disposal which was highlighted as the top issue by the residents and the local federations on their health status. UPDATE March 2021: Since last year, the work has expanded to 2 more slum relocation colonies in Mumbai, in which the local federations have shown interest in working on health. The health research experience that the Mumbai Mahila Milan gain during the course of ARISE work is shared with the Mahila Milan and Federations from other cities which e-meet on a fortnightly basis to discuss the work they are doing in their cities.
Collaborator Contribution Each meeting with the residents offers new perspectives on Accountability and Responsiveness which affect them, and provides avenues for ARISE to take up in its research inquiry and action UPDATE March 2021: Each locality where ARISE research is in progress, requires deep participation of the local federating groups not just for access, but to actually participate in the process of research and provide feedback from a community perspective. For e.g. the local federations are of the opinion that, participation of residents is subject to them seeing action and therefore, recommendation of short action research cycles to bring visible change to people's lives
Impact There are several outcomes pre-ARISE which is documented in several academic papers. Since this was yet an exploratory phase pre-ethics, the new set of discussions have not yet produced any output for ARISE UPDATE March 2021: Though there is still some resistance to the concept of research, where significant time and resources are spent on evidence collection, many in the federations see the value of taking a professional approach to action, an see building evidence as an important element of negotiations with the state

Organisation Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation
Country India

PI Contribution SPARC and the federations were always aware that there is a huge incidence of TB infection in most slums and in relocation colonies due to the level of exposure, poor medication discipline, cultural barriers and attached stigma to it. SPARC started with reaching out to the District TB officer (DTO) asking if they would conduct sessions around TB control. With personal connections to the Maharashtra state TB director, SPARC is planning to leverage this relationship further to increase work around TB in the federation localities- mainly awareness and support.
Collaborator Contribution Local officials responsible for the Tuberculosis program will address communication, awareness, screening, testing, counselling, treatment and addressing stigma around the disease in the specific location. Preliminary meetings have been initiated between the leadership of Natwar Parikh compound and other locations
Impact 1 awareness session was held in one of the relocation colonies Indian Oil (Natwar Parikh) Compound where TB officials visited and held session on basic awareness around TB- symptoms, treatment, patient care, stigma, prevention and nutritional support. Indian Oil compound is home to close to 5000 families. 2 more planned sessions were postponed due to increased workload of the DTO officials post COVID lockdown and will be followed up, with a training of a core team from SPARC -federations instead.

PI Contribution LSTM devised the methodology for creating a shared understanding of safeguarding within the Hub, brought a safeguarding lead to our Hub meeting in Nairobi, and facilitated sessions at which our partners developed action plans. LSTM lead writing of a publication which brought together our learning. In July 2020, ARISE hub members (the ARISE PI and the COMAHS ARISE safeguarding lead in Sierra Leone) were invited to present the ARISE story of safeguarding at a webinar on the UKCDR guidance - 'Preventing Harm in Research'. This webinar was widely attended, with over 700 people from a range of organisations, including donors, research councils, and researchers in the UK and beyond
Collaborator Contribution Partners shared safeguarding policies and guidelines in place at their organisation, for some partners this included policies related to child protection, prevention of sexual harassment, child labour and whistleblowing policies which included safeguarding concerns such as sexual assault, abuse and gender based violence. Partners contributed to identification of both country specific and international policies and guidelines regarding safeguarding and were involved in a participatory process to agree a joint definition of safeguarding after a collective discussion of the terms and phrases that be considered within safeguarding definition. Some of this took place at the Kenya Consortium Meeting with some follow up afterwards. Partners then contributed to the development of an ARISE safeguarding risk assessment and action plan. At a session facilitated by the LSTM Safeguarding lead, Southern partners worked in country teams to identify potential safeguarding concerns within the ARISE Hub. Partners had a wealth of experience in the types of contexts in which we will work, and were able to add depth and breadth to our understanding of the ways in which our work could potentially add risk to the lives of vulnerable people living in urban informal settlements. Furthermore, our Hub partners have combined years of experience of safeguarding practice, under several different names, which they shared as we considered the challenges of responding to identified concerns in environments which often lack basic services. The learning from southern partners was invaluable in framing our safeguarding action plan, adding practice and experience which has since fed back into for example, the LSTM institutional safeguarding policy and process. In August 2020, Bintu Mansaray from COMAHS was assigned as the Safeguarding Lead and worked with the Safeguarding Leads of Concern Sierra Leone, Sierra Leone Red Cross Society and International Rescue Committee to develop the safeguarding policy for treatment centres and hospitals in Sierra Leone. In September 2020, they provided safeguarding training for the respective safeguarding focal points at treatment centres and then rolled out training for all staff working at treatment and isolation centres. As a result of this work, Bintu was invited to join the Safeguarding Community of Practice in Sierra Leone with a large network of safeguarding representatives from national and international organisations working in Sierra Leone.
Impact This collaboration is multi-disciplinary, with urban experts, Metrics experts, health and social scientists working together to consider ethics, safeguarding and programme management.

Partners contributed to identification of both country specific and international policies and guidelines regarding safeguarding and were involved in a participatory process to agree a joint definition of safeguarding after a collective discussion of the terms and phrases that be considered within safeguarding definition. Some of this took place at the Kenya Consortium Meeting with some follow up afterwards. Partners then contributed to the development of an ARISE safeguarding risk assessment and action plan. At a session facilitated by the LSTM Safeguarding lead, Southern partners worked in country teams to identify potential safeguarding concerns within the ARISE Hub. Partners had a wealth of experience in the types of contexts in which we will work, and were able to add depth and breadth to our understanding of the ways in which our work could potentially add risk to the lives of vulnerable people living in urban informal settlements. Furthermore, our Hub partners have combined years of experience of safeguarding practice, under several different names, which they shared as we considered the challenges of responding to identified concerns in environments which often lack basic services. The learning from southern partners was invaluable in framing our safeguarding action plan, adding practice and experience which has since fed back into for example, the LSTM institutional safeguarding policy and process. In August 2020, Bintu Mansaray from COMAHS was assigned as the Safeguarding Lead and worked with the Safeguarding Leads of Concern Sierra Leone, Sierra Leone Red Cross Society and International Rescue Committee to develop the safeguarding policy for treatment centres and hospitals in Sierra Leone. In September 2020, they provided safeguarding training for the respective safeguarding focal points at treatment centres and then rolled out training for all staff working at treatment and isolation centres. As a result of this work, Bintu was invited to join the Safeguarding Community of Practice in Sierra Leone with a large network of safeguarding representatives from national and international organisations working in Sierra Leone.

PI Contribution A scoping visit was made to Shimla during which the TGI team interacted with key stakeholders and explored the possibility of having Shimla as one of the study/action sites for the project. The team also went on a field visit to a "colony" where municipal sanitary workers lived and spoke to them about their problems - living conditions, job security, health concerns, etc. We had informative and successful meetings with prospective grassroots partners in the three cities that we have chosen as action sites. Following the discussions, all three organizations have agreed to work with us. "A follow-up visit was made to Vijayawada and Guntur during which the TGI team interacted with the key stakeholders and discussed the proposed work plan and MOUs. A presentation was made to DBRC about the proposed workplan in Vijayawada/Guntur The team also shadowed waste pickers, in order to get a sense of what their average work day looks like. In addition, the team also visited the dumping yard in Guntur, to observe how waste was treated at these plants and also interact with a few people who work there. " The team now work regularly with these community groups, to implement ARISE research and for observational science. UPDATE March 2021: ARISE_TGI has supported the grassroots organisations in their advocacy efforts, particularly during COVID-19. The team facilitated a fundraising campaign for DBRC, in order to provide relief material (cooked meals, ration kits, etc.) for waste picking communities in Vijayawada and Guntur, India. Field work is ongoing across the action sites, with efforts being made to pilot the health and well-being survey in the next few months. Relationships with grassroots partners across the action sites have strengthened considerably and consistent efforts are being made to keep the discussions/dialogue as participatory and inclusive as well.
Collaborator Contribution Collaborations with our grassroots partners and waste picking communities across the three sites have strengthened over time. We have been able to establish a fairly open channel of communication/engagement with them, and are trying different ways to keep the discussions as participatory as possible. Our interactions with the waste picking communities in Vijayawada were appreciated by the communities themselves, and the grassroots partners as well.
