About this grant

Afesis-corplan works to ensure that civil society participates in local government processes and holds local government accountable for service delivery and decisionmaking. Mott supported Afesis-corplan to implement a good governance survey instrument to provide feedback to municipalities on how communities rate their performance, particularly in relation to meeting development targets and facilitating community participation in decisionmaking. The grant also assisted it to implement a key performance indicator model for ward committees, the formal structures through which communities participate in local government to assess and monitor the performance of municipalities. This grant will assist Afesis-corplan to further implement these models and to initiate interventions for communities to assess and monitor municipal financial accountability in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, and Mpumalanga provinces.
