Civic Participation

Civic Participation and State Accountability

ActionAid Zambia mobilizes excluded people living in poverty, our partners, allies and movements to expand space for active civic participation of women and young people, to build a redistributive state that ensures progressively and adequately financed public services which are gender responsive, accountable to people and contribute to transforming societies to be more just and democratic.

Focus Areas:

  1. Public participation: We will mobilise with partners and allies to protect and expand political space for civil society organisations and participation in democratic decision making to influence and hold the government and corporates accountable.
  2. Public resources: We will mobilise to demand for efficient, participatory, accountable and progressive tax, allocation and utilisation systems.
  3. GRPS Public services: We will contribute to transformations in the quality, inclusiveness, accountability and gender responsiveness1
