  15. The KALAHI-CIDSS Poverty Equation P O V E R T Y DISEMPOWERMENT -lack of voice; -lack of agency to express demand; BAD GOVERNANCE -Patronage politics; -Corruption; -Sub-optimal resource use;

  16. The Governance – Poverty Link • Poor are not consulted • Resources don’t get to the poor, already scarce public resources are misused • Interventions do not respond to needs of the poor • Little meaningful government-citizen engagement exist • Result: Poverty reduction efforts are undermined • Challenge: How to improve effectiveness of poverty reduction efforts with government?

  17. What’s The Solution? • Process for systematic consultation • Respond to identified priorities • Checks and balances (with penalties) • Develop capacities • Access to information • Monitor and evaluate • Empower poor communities to drive the process • COMMUNITY-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT

  18. How KALAHI-CIDSS does it • Making resources targeted • Facilitating community engagement using proven tools to mobilize and support communities to get involved • Making resource use demand-driven  Open project menu based on informed choice through • Making PIME accessible, and popular  PSA, prioritization, procurement, finance, community-based monitoring • Design systems and processes that communities can use  village assemblies, community volunteer committees, direct fund transfers, grievance redress • Building capacity  community (demand-side) and local government (supply-side)

  19. Ingredients for meaningful Government-Citizen Engagement • On the part of government • Institutional change: from “traditional” to “innovative” • Internal change management process • Decentralized decision making • Develop non-traditional skills (dialogue, partnership vs contracting, etc.) • Flexibility, become “nimble” (local and contextual) • On the part of citizens and communities • Practice active citizenship: participate – actively! • Skills to manage program preparation and implementation (technical, financial, managerial)

  20. What can CDD Achieve? • Facilitate claim-making for the poor • Local governments more responsive to needs of the poor • Complement broader public sector reform initiatives at decentralization, local planning and budgeting, with the potential to harmonize community-oriented approaches
