What is the aim of the toolkit?
Civil Society Accountability: Principles and Practice is a toolkit developed by the One World Trust in partnership with the Commonwealth Foundation and Voluntary Action Network India. It explores what accountability means for civil society organisations in India and provides suggestions on how to put accountability into practice. The toolkit has three aims:
- To identify common principles of accountability for CSOs in India;
- To identify current good accountability practices that exist among CSOs in India and areas where capacity needs building in the sector and where further support is required;
- To provide practical steps, tools and frameworks that CSOs can use to realise accountability in their day-to-day activities and interactions with stakeholders.
