Our Nicaraguan case study is unique, in that it worked with aid-recipient communities to find out their need for aid information.
We wanted to know how much communities knew about projects affecting them. How much involvement did they have in the planning and implementation stages?
What we discovered is that there is a huge lack of knowledge at the community level about these projects.
Working from this stand point, we tried to find out why this happened, why information was not available and what barriers existed to stop communities accessing information.
Based on conversations we had with the communities, we put together a series of actions which outline how these issues can be dealt with.
