Governance and Social Accountability

July 17, 2017

Improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable requires that governments have the capacity to deliver essential services. The Organization for Livelihood Enhancement Services (OLIVES) approach to development recognizes that effective state institutions are necessary to ensure that people’s lives are improved with better services, ranging from health to education to security to job creation.

OLIVES does this through improving the supply of services from government institutions, empowering citizens (especially women) and civil society to hold government to accountable, monitor development project, track budgetary allocations, demand better service delivery and the protection of their rights, and improving government responsiveness to these citizen demands.
