The purpose of this research is to identify the potential and constraints of community-driven management and service delivery by tracking the evolution of participation, in selected projects as shaped by the interface between individuals, community workers and institutions.
This research aims to explore a number of case study interventions in Tanzania and South Africa which have as their unifying feature a commitment to community-driven development. Through detailed ethnographic research we aim to shed light on the interactions of individuals, community-based workers and institutions in community-based development, in order to respond to current gaps in knowledge
This paper therefore reviews changing policy in Tanzania with regard to water supply and HIV/AIDS. As such, it tracks the development of policy approaches towards these two issues, it outlines the governmental frameworks in which community-driven interventions are embedded, and it reviews the activities of the major international and national actors in providing community-driven water and HIVAIDS interventions on a national scale.
