Document typeResearch report
This publication is a reflection on approaches that stimulateÂ responsiveness in citizens and communities - basedÂ in their strengths - and enable more confident expressionsÂ of their civic voice and agency. This is done through the lens of the Australia Africa Community Engagement Scheme (AACES), aÂ community-led water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)Â initiative implemented in South Africa and Zambia byÂ Oxfam Australia and Oxfam Great Britain, respectively.
This report is the second volume in a series of publicationsÂ focussed on identifying principles and practicesÂ for effectively facilitating the active civic engagement ofÂ communities and civil society organisations.Â The first volume, Facilitating Civic Engagement throughÂ Consultation: Learning from local communities throughÂ the NHI-Accountability Project in South Africa, publishedÂ by Oxfam Australia in February 2016, drawsÂ directly on the experience of the organisations andÂ communities that participated in health policy reform in South Africa.Â
