Social accountability and governance
Monitoring and evaluating empowerment
Client: World Bank
Location: Multi -country
The aim of this four-country initiative is to develop and pilot diagnostic tools that measure and analyze how specific country programs have impacted empowerment. In all four cases, “empowerment” refers primarily to the kind of engagement citizens have with government officials and service providers.
Developing Rights-Based Indicators
Participatory rights assessment methodologies (PRAMS) have been developed for DFID to strengthen identification of and work with poor and vulnerable groups. GYA was asked to contribute to this process by analysing how existing poverty assessments use indicators to capture rights, to set out what makes rights indicators different from existing social and economic indicators and to identify implications for the PRAMS work.
Public consultation for water sector development
We led the advisory input in this area, working with local consultants to design a system of public consultation that gives a voice to all sections of the community affected by water sector reform. The aim is to improve the design of the new system, reduce marginalisation of the poor and to give confidence to private sector participants that the reform model is viable.
