Social Accountability Tools for the Africa Region
Course Delivery Dates
The World Bank Institute (WBI) e-learning course on Social Accountability Tools for the Africa Region focuses on the “how-to” of social accountability by introducing some of the most commonly-used tools. While implemented at different stages of the public financial management cycle, Social Accountability Tools enable civil society practitioners the knowledge to generate demand for and ultimately improve governance at the local, regional, and national levels.
The course is organized into four modules that present the key concepts and provide opportunities to apply and discuss SA tools that have been used by practitioners around the globe to effectively engage with the state.
- Module 1: Budget Work;
- Module 2: Participatory Budgeting;
- Module 3: Participatory Public Expenditure Tracking Surveys (PETS);
- Module 4: Performance Monitoring (includes Citizen Report Cards, Community Scorecards, Social Audits, Procurement Monitoring, and others).
The medium of instruction for the course will be English. Participants from Francophone and Lusophone Africa are welcome to participate. The World Bank Institute is currently working on producing the course in French, which will be available soon.
