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 decision making. With previous support, the grantee implemented 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 decision making. It also implemented a key performance indicator model for ward committees, the formal structures through which communities participate in local governance, to assess and monitor the performance of municipalities. This grant will assist the grantee to further implement these models and to initiate interventions for communities to assess and monitor municipal financial accountability.
