Mauritania opts-in to GPSA
On May 8, 2015, the Government of Mauritania informed the World Bank Office in a letter of consent of its decision to opt-in to the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA). With the Government’s formal consent, the civil society organizations (CSOs) in the country have now become eligible to participate in future Calls for Proposals of the GPSA.
CSOs can apply for grants for social accountability projects, which seek to solve a specific governance challenge in the country. GPSA grants generally last between 3 to 5 years and are accompanied by a strong capacity building program for the grantees to ensure the success of the projects through constructive engagement and strategic social accountability mechanisms.
In total, 45 countries have opted-in to the GPSA to date. To see all the countries where the GPSA’s funding component can operate, visit Where We Operate.
