Dynamic Accountability – putting stakeholder feedback at the heart of CSO accountability practice

03:30 PM 21 september, 2017

Do you support the concept of active stakeholder participation, but regularly face difficulties to ensure that stakeholder wishes, contributions or changing needs on the ground are the real drivers of CSO decisions? Have you ever wondered how to close the feedback loop?

In this session we will explore the link between trust and co-creation with local stakeholders and the protection of civic space, and will propose a dynamic conception of accountability as one possible way to address this issue. Based on participants’ knowledge and experience, and enhanced by the Global Standard as a tool for dynamic CSO accountability, we will conduct a peer coaching session to discuss challenges and to identify best practices in a truly systematic use of feedback.

Speakers and facilitators:
Katja Gürten, Global Partnerships Manager, Global Standard for CSO Accountability
