Social Accountability

Public consultation at the district, sub-district and village levels is a compulsory part of the planning process through the ‘musrenbang’, an annual community forum that aims to reach an agreement on program priorities for local government.

However, marginalised groups – including the poor, women and people with disabilities – are not contributing actively in many of these forums. To strengthen social accountability, KOMPAK:

  • Develops the confidence, skills and knowledge of female community members through the Paradigta Academy to take a more active role in the community, particularly in leadership positions;
  • Supports villages to establish groups for women and other marginalised persons - particularly women - so that they can collectively discuss and raise issues with their local government;
  • Uses PTPD (Village Governance Facilitator) to promote community participation in villages; and
  • Provides facilitation and training to community members - particularly those from marginalised groups - on village budgeting and planning.

KOMPAK Success 2022:

Communities - especially women, the poor and vulnerable - take action to push government and service units to improve the accessibility and quality of service.
