Strengthening the role of the church in promoting social cohesion and civic participation within devolution processes
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity and role of the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHOCD) to promote good governance, social cohesion and civic participation in Midlands, Manicaland, and Masvingo Provinces in the context of Zimbabwe’s ongoing ‘Devolution and Decentralisation Framework’ (2019) through:
- Building the internal capacity and accountability within the church structures
- Building the capacity of the church to convene local dialogues and disseminate information on devolution
- Facilitating citizen-duty bearer platforms and highlighting local needs, priorities and solutions, including for resilience and disaster risk reduction, preparedness and response.
