OUR CURRENT PROJECTS IN: PURSAT
Goal: Our implementation of the Social Accountability Framework (I-SAF) in Cambodia aims to empower citizens, strengthen partnerships between sub-national administrators (SNAs) and citizens, and enhance the accountability of SNA's and local service providers such as Commune Primary Schools, Commune Health Centers and Commune Councils.
Components (Objectives & Activities): The I-SAF consists of four operational objectives:
Access to information and budgets - Makes provisions to provide citizens with information about policies, standards, budgets, and performance data related to a core set of public services - initially, communes, health centers, and primary schools - on an annual basis.
Citizen Monitoring - Introduces annual facilitated citizen monitoring of these services with a view to promoting citizen voice, productive dialogue between citizens and public officials/service providers, and collective actions for improvement.
Facilitation and Capacity Building - Supports the successful implementation of Components 1 and 2 by training local actors in I-SAF-related themes to act as a bridge between citizens and state actors.
Learning and Monitoring - track the progress and results of the program, documents lessons and uses this learning to improve practices and policies over time.
