Public Resource Use
Covid Transparency and Accountability Project (CTAP)
Working closely with Connected Development and BudgIT, we are supporting a coalition of civil society organizations in Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria and Sierra Leone as they track the availability and use of funds intended to address COVID-related challenges. In our role as learning partner, we help partners share and compare their experience, and use the resulting reflections to enhance the effectiveness of the approaches they are taking to track the use of resources and to mobilize citizens to demand accountability.
Global Integrity’s role in the CTAP project is focused on supporting project implementation and facilitating learning and adaptation with nine African CSO partners. We distilled lessons and insights from CTAP Phase 1 to guide the design and implementation of CTAP Phase 2 that is currently underway. The overall lessons from this project are useful to TAP and AC reformers in other contexts. Learn more about CTAP here: https://covidfund.africa/
The overall goal of the project is to promote accountability and transparency on Covid 19 allocations by:
- Developing a website for curating and sharing relevant data on all the COVID-19 donations and payments across all 54 countries in Africa.
- Initiating country level advocacy for for transparency and accountability of COVID-19 funding mainly through research, coalition building and using social media and radio communications campaign.
- Help CTAP partners reflect and adapt the pan African goals of the CTAP project to their country contexts.
- Strengthen local TAP strategies by facilitating peer learning, networking and exchanging of ideas around COVID-19 transparency efforts through engaging events.
