will make use of four basic strategies to achieve its objectives

Introducing civic actors to the basics of public resource management monitoring for improved social accountability:  The RLP will offer the Fundamentals of Social Accountability Monitoring course three times per year to interested demand-side actors who meet its selection criteria.

Supporting the use of tools developed by the PSAM for monitoring public resource management processes and service delivery across a number of different contexts in Sub-Saharan Africa: The purpose of these partnerships will be to test the adaptability and applicability of the PSAM approach to monitoring and its tools and to demonstrate that their application can eventually lead to a sustainable improvement in service delivery outcomes.

Facilitating knowledge generation and rigorous, user-friendly documentation of experiences:  To support the adaptation of the monitoring approach taught on the Fundamentals course the RLP will, in collaboration with its learning partners, map the legal, regulatory and normative framework within contexts onto the five processes through which public resource management processes can become social accountability processes.

Creating opportunities for learning across contexts: An online learning community operates at first include the RLP’s growing network of accountability practitioners and hopefully over time will expand to include a broader group of interested stakeholders. In the longer term, it is anticipated that these connections will lead to the development and improvement of a social accountability community of practice and will encourage and enhance innovations in the field by both demand-side and supply-side actors.
