ARDD held a "Partnerships and Needs Assessment” Workshop at its offices in Mafraq
The Arab Renaissance For Democracy and Development- ARDD held a "Partnerships and Needs Assessment” Workshop at its offices in Mafraq on Monday 13/11/2017 for the Maan Lenabne project. Maan Lenabne is two-year project that builds the capacity of community-based organizations (CBOs) in order to participate in decision making processes at the municipal level. The project engages the CBOs in a manner that will enable them to voice the needs of their communities (both refugees and host community members) at the municipality level in order to ensure the provision of better services in Mafraq, Sarhan, and Ramtha. During the workshop the group discussed both community and CBO needs and the challenges of responding to them. The workshop concluded with a field visit from GIZ and AECID – the project donors and partners, in which a discussion of the project and the challenges of decentralization and Municipal engagement were exchanged.
