The LRC and other Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working on Ghana Strengthening Accountability Mechanism (GSAM) project across the Country met in Sunyani to have a 2-day workshop on the concept of Contribution Tracing and its ‘role in capturing the effects of inclusive governance work’. The training programme was under a learning partnership initiative between CARE International UK, CARE International Ghana and Pamoja.
The workshop which took place on the 30-31 March, 2017 at Eusbett Hotel, Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region, was a step-down one following an earlier one organized for selected GSAM partners and staff of CARE International, Ghana from the 6-10 February, 2017 with support from Pamoja. This was mainly on how to design and implement a Contribution Tracing evaluation to measure inclusive governance work. Participants were taken through Contribution Tracing – a brand new concept, which is a rigorous quali-quantitative approach that is used in impact evaluations to test the validity of claims of projects. Updates of project activities for the past two and half years, upcoming project activities for the third year and data quality assurance were among the other themes discussed.
Participants were entreated to use the concept of Contribution Tracing in tracking progress of the various District Assemblies capital projects under the GSAM catchment areas. Participants embraced this new concept and pledged their resolute to use it in achieving the goal of the GSAM project.
