WHAT IS SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY?

Social accountability is about affirming and making operational the direct accountability relationship between citizens and the state for a mutually agreed objective; for instance, improved service delivery. It involves citizens/communities working together, to ensure that government and service providers are managing public funds effectively and transparently. It is a constructive dialogue, which brings ordinary citizens, CSOs, local government institutions and public service providers towards a common vision of effective service delivery and improved accountability.
