Money Matters: Public Finance and Social Accountability for Human Capital
October 30 – November 1
World Bank Group | Washington, DC
Welcome to the fifth edition of the Global Partners Forum of the Global Partnership for Social Accountability!
Money matters in the public sector, with emphasis on human capital, is the theme of the 2018 GPSA Global Partners Forum. This year the Global Partners Forum seeks to better understand how countries’ public finances can be more effectively used to invest in improving people’s wellbeing and productivity , and how citizens and Civil Society organizations can contribute towards that goal.
The Global Partners Forum takes place annually at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC, and has become the pre-eminent global summit on social accountability for development. It convenes the
GPSA’s vibrant Global Partners Network consisting of practitioners and thought leaders across civil society, governments, academia and business, alongside World Bank staff. For more information on past editions please consult the GPSA Global Partners Forum webpage.
This year, the GPSA Forum also has a dedicated webpage on the Knowledge Platform, where participants can discuss about the topic, consult the program, know more about the speakers, and share their resources.
You may contribute to the Knowledge Platform in many different ways: you can send and disseminate your social accountability materials (toolkits, reports, videos, etc.) in the knowledge repository; you can contact, interact and collaborate with other peers and join a global community of social accountability practitioners; you can participate in the different learning and knowledge exchange activities of the GPSA KP such as online courses, thematic forums, webinars and blogs; and you can develop a partnership with the GPSA KP to implement collaborative knowledge activities.
