We are pleased to announce the call for proposals from the Global Partnership for Social Accountability
GPSA’s Fifth Global Call for Proposals was launched in November 2021 to support civil society organizations (CSOs) and CSO Networks in implementing collaborative social accountability approaches that address critical governance and development challenges.
About the Call for Proposals
The Call prioritizes CSO-led collaborative social accountability approaches that entail coalition efforts that engage local communities and citizens including vulnerable groups, and work with public sectors, at local, state and federal levels. The goal is to co-create solutions to jointly identified problems in the selected thematic areas. Information generated from social accountability processes can enable for corrective measures to be taken, and improvement of policy implementation and delivery of services.
What are the priority themes of this CfP?
The focus of the CfP will be: transformative use of social accountability to solve pressing development challenges. Short-listed countries will define a theme within the following menu based on the GPSA’s mission and track record:
- Health systems strengthening in the context of the COVID-19 recovery
- Citizen voices and oversight for climate action (just transition and locally-led climate dialogues)
- Cross-cutting themes: Inclusion, CivicTech
The country priority theme must clearly spell out a governance or development challenge that can be addressed through collective action of local communities, civil society and government and garner government accountability and responsiveness, and that can be taken up in the government’s delivery systems or reforms.
Only applications from CSOs in the shortlisted countries within the descripted national theme will be eligible.
