This event considers how a number of GTF programmes and projects focus directly on building grassroots capacity to demand improvements in state provision of public goods, especially by hitherto marginalised groups (women, disabled people, youths).
The speakers and discussants have been selected to provide a critical review of this theme before facilitating an open discussion among participants so that they can provide their experiences as well.
Fletcher Tembo – Research Fellow, ODI
