Project Description

The Partnership for Social Accountability (PSA) Alliance is led by ActionAid together with the Public Service Accountability Monitor (PSAM), the Eastern and Southern Africa Small Scale Farmers’ Forum (ESAFF) and SAfAIDS, and supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The project seeks to improve public resource management in agriculture (food security), and health (HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health and rights) by strengthening the oversight and social accountability roles of five target groups in the SADC region: Selected parliamentary committees; Relevant government departments; Issue-based civil society organisations (CSOs); Smallholder farmer organisations; and the Media.

In the first three years (2016 – 2019), the project will focus on Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia. In each of the target countries, the partners will provide training on public resource management, support for critical social accountability monitoring, and platforms for collaboration and learning.
