CARE International in partnership with IBIS and Integrated Social Development Centre (ISODEC) has selected LRC to support in the implementation of the Ghana’s Strengthening Accountability Mechanisms (GSAM) project in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba and Bole districts of the Northern Region of Ghana for the next five years. 

Under this project 100 districts have been chosen across the country to be worked in. This project will ensure that there is an improvement of local governance by enhancing bottom-up social accountability mechanisms in the selected district assemblies.

The project will use participatory and social engagement processes to empower citizens to participate in the assessment of performance of public policies, programmes and projects in order to influence the processes, outcomes and impacts of these instruments against the corresponding budgetary allocations.
