GPSa Knowledge Platform


Objectives of the GPSA Knowledge Platform

The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) aims to provide strategic and sustained support to civil society organizations’ (CSOs) social accountability initiatives to ultimately improve governance and service delivery. This Knowledge Platform, complemented with offline activities, has been envisioned as the main tool for supporting the learning, networking and knowledge exchange of the GPSA’s grantees and of other CSOs working on social accountability in the global south.

Platform Components

The GPSA Knowledge Platform is integrated by four functional modules: a knowledge repository, learning activities, a networking space and knowledge exchange forums. Although these modules appear to offer separate activities, in reality, they are closely interrelated and are mutually reinforcing.




The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) is a coalition of donors, governments and civil society organizations (CSOs) that aims to improve development results by supporting capacity building for enhanced citizen feedback and participation. The GPSA provides strategic and sustained support to beneficiary groups and civil society organizations (CSOs) in developing countries that are working with their governments, to promote greater transparency and accountability.

GPSA Grantees

The GPSA provides financial support for initiatives to improve the overall “ecosystem,” or enabling environment for social accountability, including specific social accountability programs and initiatives, for the institutional development of CSOs working on social accountability, and for knowledge generation and dissemination activities. Such support focuses on initiatives at the country level led by individual CSOs and multi-stakeholder coalitions as well as selective initiatives at the regional and global levels. Currently there are several GPSA grantees that have been awarded a grant after a competitive process.
