Taking Accountability to Scale: A Discussion of Collaboration Between GPSA-Supported Projects and Accountability Institutions

Carolina Cornejo, Renzo Lavin and Marcos Mendiburu

Publisher: GPSA Notes


Engagement between accountability institutions (AIs) and civil society organizations
(CSOs) is an important dimension in the theory of change of the Global Partnership for
Social Accountability (GPSA). According to the GPSA’s theory of change, AIs and CSOs,
by working together, can benefit and strengthen each other and contribute to government
accountability. But what does this approach look like in practice? What initiatives are
being implemented under GPSA-supported projects and how? This note takes a look at
the efforts being made by the CSOs implementing GPSA grants. It explores the strategies
used and the challenges that have been encountered, with the aim of learning from ongoing
experiences in this area.
