Citizens First (Oxfam Novib) 

This project aims to build the capacity of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in evidence-based advocacy in the field of human security. Advocacy committees have been established at the district, provincial and national levels out of those CSOs who have accessed the PTRO advocacy training. CSOs will also receive training in good governance and public participation as well as budget tracking. To complement this work with CSOs, district authorities and civil servants will be trained in advocacy, policy and policy formulation. The hope is that by training both CSOs and public servants in these topics, public accountability and the quality of public services will increase. 


Civil Society Legislative Monitoring and Advocacy (USIP)

A well-informed, well-educated and involved civil society is vital for legislative development that is reflective of the population it is meant to guide, govern and control. An active civil society is not only likely to generate a more reflective, and therefore more legitimate legal code, but law passed at the national level are more likely to be implemented at the provincial and local levels. In essence, the national and local levels must be brought closer to one another.
