Consultations on Global Partnership for Social Accountability

The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) is a new global multi-stakeholder coalition that aims to increase levels of social accountability  at the country level. GPSA partners encompass a broad range of civil society organizations, foundations, bilateral organizations, research institutes and media organizations. The GPSA is funded by a multi-donor trust fund, to which the World Bank will contribute US$ 20 million through 2016. The Ford Foundation has announced its initial investment of US$ 3 million for two years to support the GPSA (press release).

Between January 1, 2012 and March 15, 2012 over 1,300 stakeholders from all parts of the world provided input on the World Bank’s proposal for the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA). Stakeholders consulted comprised a broad range of actors involved in social accountability work, including civil society organizations and foundations, government officers, development agencies, academia, and think tanks. They provided their feedback during face-to-face discussions, in audio and video conferences, through e-mail, and by filling out the online survey. Feedback summaries and further information about the first phase of consultations can be accessed in the schedules below. Overviews of the comments submitted through an online survey and by e-mail, as well as from several organizations are available in the Online Feedback box.

A Summary of Consultation Feedback and GPSA Features (PDF) has been prepared to present an overview of how the GPSA addresses the comments and suggestions received from stakeholders.

Phase 2 Consultations 

Follow-up multistakeholder consultations will be held in countries once they have opted in to the GPSA, to define priority areas for the call for proposals in each country, aligned with national development strategies.
