Call for Proposals: Innovative and transformative use of social accountability to solve critical governance and development challenges
The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) is pleased to announce its 4th global Call for Proposals (CfP) for civil society organizations (CSOs) and CSO networks.
GPSA has invited its 52 opted-in countries, through the World Bank’s country management units, to express interest to participate in the CfP. A shortlist of countries will be defined and announced in Spring 2019, along with the thematic focus for each country. The application process will then be opened for CSOs in those shortlisted countries.
- Addressing critical governance and development challenges through social accountability processes that involve citizen feedback and participatory methodologies geared to helping governments and public-sector institutions address these challenges. Special emphasis is on problems that affect extreme poor and marginalized populations.
- Strengthening civil society's capacities for social accountability by investing in CSOs' institutional strengthening and through mentoring of small, nascent CSOs by well-established, larger CSOs with a track record on social accountability.
