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 the Development Network of Indigenous Voluntary Associations. It explores what accountability means for civil society organisations in Uganda and provides suggestions on how to put accountability into practice.
The toolkit has three aims:
- To identify common principles of accountability for CSOs in Uganda with specific reference to existing self-regulation mechanisms (QuAM);
- To identify the current good accountability practices that exist among CSOs and identify areas where capacity needs building in the sector and further support is required;
- To provide practical steps, tools and frameworks that CSOs can use to achieve accountability in their day-to-day activities and interactions with stakeholders.
