Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The UN Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption (UN-PRAC) Project, implemented by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is seeking applications for its Social Accountability Grants Programme to support projects aimed at building social accountability in Pacific Island Countries through engagement of non-State actors in social accountability processes and social monitoring.
The Programme seeks to assist Pacific communities in the implementation of initiatives that aim at achieving greater access to justice (in line with SDG16) and more meaningful service delivery. Previous UN-PRAC social accountability projects have, among others, increased awareness of services through community-based outreach programmes, provided materials in local languages and helped CSOs and youth to create stronger, more-inclusive networks.
This round of funding seeks to go a step further and support innovative and creative processes that can demonstrate measurable and sustainable results, and have potential for scaling up and mobilizing more funding. Applicants may consider using social accountability tools for project design and outcome e.g. citizen report cards, social audits, etc.
Proposed activities are to be carried out within nine months, starting from 1 July 2018 and ending no later than 31 March 2019.
