Civic Engagement & Accountability

About the project

By enabling participation at local levels, the Civic Engagement and Accountability project ensures that citizens, civil society and media contribute to decision-making with focus on women and youth. 

The project makes the state better responsive for effective public decision-making and consultative policy-making. This is done by using innovative ICT based services and platforms and feedback and information sharing mechanisms. 

Project Objectives

  1. To strengthen the state in fostering and consolidating democratic development.
  2. To facilitate inclusive, democratic dialogue and decision making.
  3. To ensure women and youth meaningfully participate in the democratic process.
