Social Stability partners provide ongoing support to municipalities to strengthen their capacity to mitigate tensions created by the socio-economic shock of the crisis.

Part of this support includes implementing small (community support) and medium (basic services) projects to alleviate resource pressure and provide tangible benefits to local communities.

While CSPs and BS projects can cover a wide range of interventions, from equipment of public institutions to provision of garbage trucks or construction of sport facilities, they all have the following components:

(1) social stability purpose = primary aim of the project is to reduce tensions by alleviating resource pressure and supporting municipality;

(2) targeting primarily host communities;

(3) ‘hard’ tangible projects resulting in investment in service provision/infrastructure;

(4) based on a participatory process.
