Social Accountability Guidebook
The Social Accountability Guidebook for CSOs is a learning resource that is intended to support the building of a community of practice of social accountability practitioners, advocates, and champions in West Africa. The Guidebook presents case studies of social accountability initiatives from the West African sub-region, interspersed with definitions of terminologies related to the concept. It is intended to deepen understanding and foster appreciation of the concept of social accountability, its potential for strengthening accountability in the sub-region, and the challenges that may be encountered in implementing social accountability initiatives in West African country contexts. It is hoped that the Guidebook will serve as a catalyst for further development and tailoring of the concept of social accountability to the West African context, by CSOs, development practitioners, local and central government agencies, the donor community, and all others who are interested in advancing accountability in West Africa.
The guidebook is a product of a regional shared learning workshop organised by the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI)
