Under direct community support, CSP collaborates with local partners to implement short- and medium-term interventions aimed at improving livelihoods and ensuring access to services, alleviating sources of tension among communities.
Short-term interventions include the repair and rehabilitation of light infrastructure and the provision of equipment such as water tanks, generators, and streetlighting. Longer-term interventions are geared toward improving quality of life and achieving sustainable community development. These include solid waste management projects, clean energy solutions, and short-term income generating opportunities.
Once a community is selected for an intervention, CSP adopts a participatory design approach with local actors, including municipalities, civil society organizations (CSOs), and other community-based groups. CSP also consults with engineering and environmental contractors to maximize interventions’ benefit for communities and avoid implementation delays.
