Abstract: This article exposes some of the practical difficulties encountered when executing strategies for participation and empowerment in water and sanitation (watsan) projects, focusing mainly on the role of the implementing staff. During seven months in Bangladesh I have been following two different watsan-projects using strategies of participation and empowerment. Actors at village level, implementing level and at administrative level of the projects have been interviewed and observed. The purpose of the study, which is part of a PhD-project in Sociology, is to find, investigate and understand issues that affect the realisation of such strategies.
Description: This is a conference paper.
Sponsor: The research has been funded by SIDA/SAREC, Sweden and Crafoord, Sweden.
