Call for Chapter Authors for a Publication on Social Accountability and Governance

UNDP’s Oslo Governance Centre and Civil Society Division are producing a comparative experience publication tentatively titled ‘Social Accountability for Improved Governance and Achievement of the MDGs’. This publication will explore emerging social, political, environment and ICT trends and illustrate how different actors, including CSOs, are responding to these trends and promoting engagement in development processes through social accountability initiatives, including in efforts to achieve the MDGs. The publication will present and analyse strategies and approaches that have been successful in bringing about responsive governance and policy change, including innovative approaches of civil society actors, UNDP and other development partners.

Specifically, the publication will contain individual chapters on the relevance of social accountability mechanisms in the context of urbanization, access to information and ICT advancements, environmental challenges and climate change, and conflict and fragile situations.

Terms of Reference for consultants are posted on the UNDP jobs site. We are also looking for an overall editor/coordinator for the publication. Please disseminate the ToRs widely and encourage qualified authors, who could bring together the different elements laid out in the ToRs, to apply.
