INCLUSIVITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN GOVERNANCE
AND PFM

SNG supports provincial and local governments in mainstreaming accountability, transparency and inclusiveness in key planning, budgeting and monitoring processes. Marginalised and vulnerable groups, particularly women, persons with disabilities and minorities, remain a primary focus of the programme.

Key activities under this cross-cutting output include:

    • Promoting citizen engagement in provincial and local planning and budgeting, for example, through pre-budget consultations
    • Reviewing provincial planning processes to make them inclusive and participatory, with a focus on Planning and Development Board and Agriculture Dept
    • Training parliamentarians, especially women, in planning and budget-making processes for an informed debate on the budget
    • Developing Citizen Engagement Guidelines for local government officials and elected representatives and training them to promote citizen engagement in service delivery
