Rural Village Water Resource Management Project (RVWRMP) has been initiated in seven districts of Far-Western Region and two districts of Mid- Western Region with financial and technical support of Government of Finland. The basic objective of the project is to “improve quality of life, environmental conditions and increased opportunities to improve rural livelihoods in the 80 VDCs of nine districts through rational, equitable and sustainable use of water at the community/village level.” In order to meet the overall objective of RVWRMP, social mobilization will be undertaken as a crucial element in the implementation of project activities at the village level. Thus, a brief guideline for the social mobilization has been prepared to implement the project in uniform way in all selected VDCs. The Social Mobilization in a broader sense means organizing people living in the same
community with a specific purpose. A more comprehensive definition of Social Mobilization suggests that it is a dynamic and participatory process of empowering people, especially the poor and the socially excluded, for their socio-cultural, political and economic upliftment in a sustainable manner.
