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