Capturing and Communicating Lessons from Social Accountability Initiatives
The Affiliated Network for Social Accountability in Eaast Asia and the Pacific (ANSA-EAP) joined the Partnership for Transparency Fund (PTF) and the Makati Business Club - Coalition Against Corruption (MBC-CAC) to implement a two-year project called Enhancing Transparency Impact (ETI) Project in the Philippines. The said project involved providing both funding and technical support for social accountability (SAc) initiatives at the local level.
Last 11-13 September 2013, ANSA-EAP conducted the third and final area based learning event for the three grantees in Year 1. The Kalinga Apayao Religious Sector Association (KARSA), one of the three grantees, hosted the event which was entitled "Capturing and Communicating Results and Lessons from SAc Initiatives" which aimed to help grantees surface some of the initial results and lessons from their SAc work and identify viable strategies for communicating these to stakeholders. Eighteen representatives from KARSA, Responsible Citizens, Empowered Communities in Solidarity for Social Change (RECITE, Inc.) and the Young Concerned Citizens of Abra for Good Governance (YCAGG) attended the three-day workshop in Tabuk City.
