New street lighting has been installed on one of Palestine’s accident hotspots after a civil society campaign encouraged 20% more residents to pay their taxes.

 

As part of the five-year Pro-Poor Integrity (PPI) programme between 2008 and 2013, Integrity Action partner Applied Research Institute Jerusalem (ARIJ) supported the establishment of a joint working group in Al-Ram – made up of local council elected members and employees and civil society activists.

 

Time and again, the civil society volunteers within the group would lobby for better local services – but the Municipality would explain that they weren’t receiving enough local rates to fund improvements.
