RiPPLE's Governance and Planning theme seeks to answer the following questions:
- How does planning function in theory and practice, and how are water users involved?
- What are the incentives and barriers to stakeholders playing a more active role in decentralised WASH governance, and what is the potential for more coordinated provision of services
- What is needed to achieve the goals of the UAP in a sustainable way, in terms of capacity, government roles at different levels, communities and external support. How can all of these be strengthened?
Two cases studies relevant to this theme will run from 2007-2008.
