Citizen Participation and Accountability for Sustainable Development

Image of report coverThis new report from the Participate Initiative looks at strategies the poorest and most marginalised have used in an attempt to ensure accountability from national and global policy makers to local people. The need for greater accountability was one the key findings of the Participate research, along with the importance of participatory approaches to ensure the processes of accountability were legitimate. This report situates accountability in citizens’ lives, analyses strategies in relation to natural resource extraction, and shows how community dialogue and vision can influence discourse and policy.
