Governance and the Common Toilet

1 minute read

Author: Claire Marshall

Based on the experiences of IOG's(Media And Governance Network) programme, this article takes a refreshing and practical look at the fundamentals of good governance. The MAGNET project brought together the forces of community representatives, local government, NGOs and media in three South Asia cities: Dehiwala-Mt. Lavinia, Sri Lanka; Sangli, India; and Kathmandu, Nepal. The essay discusses the power of this combination in addressing the pressing needs of the urban poor, and could signal a new approach to community capacity building.
