Decentralization Policy

Unlike most projects, DISCAP designed and tested policy innovations on the ground, with its local partners, in its programming area.  Over time, the project migrated these innovations, through policy dialogue, training, and networking, to the national level.

These policy innovations focused on decentralization policy, water supply and gender equality, among other areas.
