The conference was organized under the theme “Social Accountability Results and Lessons in Ethiopia”. Service improvement results achieved during the implementation of Social Accountability in Ethiopia in five basic public service sectors will be presented to participants. The specific objective of the conference is to deepen the understanding of sector ministries and other national stakeholders regarding Social Accountability so that they can support the social accountability activities that are spreading in the country under the leadership of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Cooperation (MoFEC).

 

The Ethiopia Social Accountability Program Phase 2 (ESAP2) has been working on the improvement of basic services in Ethiopia since the program’s inception in 2012. Social accountability is a process by which ordinary citizens - who are the users of basic public services – voice their needs and demands and create opportunities to hold service providers and policy makers accountable for their performance. The process aims to improve the quality of and access to public basic services. As such, social accountability makes a contribution to the emergence of a demanding citizenry, as well as the achievements of the basic service sector objectives in the second Growth and Transformation Plan.
