Engaging Citizens to Improve Service Delivery Through Social Accountablity

Engaging Citizens to Improve Service Delivery through Social Accountability

The Implementation of the Social Accountability Framework (ISAF) in Cambodia aims to empower citizens, strengthen partnerships between sub-national administrations (SNAs) and citizens, and leverage enhanced accountability of SNAs to improve local service delivery. ISAF was introduced as a platform for coordinated action by government and civil society to operationalize the Strategic Plan on Social Accountability for Sub-National Democratic Development adopted by the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) on July 2013.

The Strategic Plan and ISAF are important elements of the RGC’s broader democratic development agenda, as implemented through the second (2015-2017) and third (2018-2020) 3-Year Implementation Plans (IP3). This agenda is strong commitment reflected in the Rectangular Strategy Phase IV of the Sixth Mandate of the RGC for 2018-2023 which defines clearly road map on how to further deepen good governance reforms and social accountability mechanisms to ensure achievement of growth, employment, equity and efficiency.
