TUNIS, Tunisia, November 25, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Tunisian civil society organizations are once again invited to compete for financing through the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA). The GPSA will fund civil society organizations in Tunisia working in the field of social accountability.
Social accountability work is wide ranging and includes activities like public disclosure of budgets; access to information, user satisfaction surveys; community scorecards and IT-based citizen feedback mechanisms. Organizations that are working to strengthen the accountability of government to its citizens are welcome to apply.
The GPSA is a coalition of donors, governments and civil society organizations (CSOs) that aims to improve development results. It does this by supporting capacity building in CSOs to improve citizen feedback and participation. This can result in improved governance and service delivery at the country level. The GPSA does this through strategic and sustained support to CSOs’ social accountability initiatives aimed at strengthening transparency and accountability.
GPSA launched its second Call for Proposals on November 18, 2013. Applications are accepted until January 6, 2014 from the GPSA webpage. Grant amounts range between $500,000 – $1mn over 3-5 year periods.
