Local Action 4 development

Strengthening Accountability Networks among Civil Society

Who is it for?

This project will involve promoting the concepts of democracy, participation and governance among minorities (young people, women and people with disabilities) in order to better involve them in the implementation of public policies at the grassroots level. The project that will be implemented finds its full justification in our country, Cameroon, where young people lose their bearings and women remain essentially vulnerable because of their non-involvement, among other things, in democracy and citizenship issues. The use of social networks and digital platforms will not only train and educate beneficiaries in a wider space, but also encourage their participation and put in place a survey system that will provide opportunity to assess and to monitor the management by the local executives of the budgets allocated to them.

A watchdog tool

This tool will allow citizens to stay tuned, participate in local governance and hold local elected officials accountable in case of distraction, opacity and poor performance. It is therefore an opportunity for citizens to blow the whistle in case of bad practice and non-compliance with the principles of good governance.

A monitoring / evaluation tool

This platform is an opportunity for citizens to remain focused on respecting the commitments of local elected officials and contracting companies and to promote transparency in the management of public finances at the local level. It therefore makes it possible to monitor and evaluate, qualitatively and quantitatively, the execution of local projects.
