Fostering a continuous feedback loop between citizens and public institutions helps governments to deliver public services more effectively and efficiently across different sectors. Social accountability mechanisms make it possible to protect vulnerable citizens and strengthen the rule of law; they help build support for wise policies and investments, and directly confront corruption, building citizens’ trust in institutions.
This panel discussion will focus on key issues and opportunities for engagement by all stakeholders – governments, civil society and private sector – in strategic social accountability efforts that lead to better, responsive public institutions. The GPSA’s grants in 17 countries worldwide are supporting projects in which civil society and governments engage in a constructive, multi-stakeholder approach to resolve critical governance problems.
