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.

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.

Impact Gave evidence on the existing healthcare facilities within Mukuru informal settlement. 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 seen improvement in their service delivery at this facility.

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.
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.
Impact This collaboration is multi-disciplinary, with urban experts, Metrics experts, health and social scientists working together to consider ethics, safeguarding and programme management. A Publication has been drafted and submitted and accepted for publication in BMJ Global Health.

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.
Impact This collaboration is multi-disciplinary, with urban experts, Metrics experts, health and social scientists working together to consider ethics, safeguarding and programme management. A Publication has been drafted and submitted and accepted for publication in BMJ Global Health.

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. "
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.

The Conference also aspires to create a demand for global knowledge sharing through an inclusive platform and to document the success stories in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) through the use of IR to influence programme, policy, and practice.
