GPSA, Global Partnership for Social Accountability

Description

Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) aims at increasing the accountability of the governments of the developing countries to their citizens and to improve service delivery and service quality. The core objective of the GPSA is to support the engagement of citizens and civil society in order to enhance their voice and improve the environment for their operations. The GPSA further aims at supporting cooperation among different stakeholders in order to identify sustainable solutions for development challenges. GPSA consists of two components. The main component of the GPSA is the fund which is used to support the civil society organizations in the countries which have signed a cooperation agreement with the GPSA. The second component aims at increasing knowledge and capacity of the stakeholders. Supporting the GPSA promotes the development of democratic and accountable societies, ownership and human rights. The fund supports the governments of the developing countries to reach better development results with the support of local CSO's. The fund further emphasizes human rights based approach by supporting actions which enhance the responsibility and accountability of governments, and by improving of the opportunities for citizen participation. The fund supports the voice of the vulnerable groups in the decision making and promotes equality. The direct beneficiaries of the support are civil society organizations, and more broadly, civil society at large. The GPSA has a web-based knowledge platform through which information is made available to a wider public including CSO actors outside the direct GPSA support. GPSA is a World Bank Multi Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) and has its own secretariat. GPSA has access to the World Bank's wide expert network. Implementation of the projects is carried out by the supported civil society organizations.
