Promoción de la participación ciudadana a nivel nacional y local en el ciclo de las Políticas Públicas de Protección Social para la cohesión en Paraguay
This ongoing project aims to support the progressive implementation of the Social Protection System (SPS). This will be achieved through the exercise of citizen’s rights, their democratic participation and the demands of citizens for the reduction of inequalities in the objective of improving social cohesion. The focus of the project is placed on citizen participation and community empowerment in the implementation and monitoring of policies associated with the SPS. A further emphasis is put on children, youth and women both at national and local levels. Public authorities from 12 Paraguayan districts and 6 departments have become involved in the activities, collaborating with citizens, youth and women’s organisations. Media and the private sector have also become involved at various levels to strengthen the policy and further improve its sustainability.
