Local Governance
Fair Elections, Open Parliament and Good Governance

Local tier of government happens to be at the epicenter of political stakes. Thus, local governance monitoring helps a great deal in bridging the gap that exists between government and the governed. Keeping an eye on what the government does, especially at the local level, not only helps inform people about the performance of public institutions but also gives them a sense of participation in how they are being governed.

Objective information about governance processes is vital for encouraging informed engagement of the people with the elected and public institutions. The monitoring is aimed at enriching the public discourse and debate on governance and developing research-based recommendations for reforms.

FAFEN’s outreach through its partner organizations across the country allows it to access most districts as it applies standardized methodology to draw information from public institutions.

Trained 15,000 women candidates and over 5,000 women local government representatives on political processes

Organized various citizen support groups advocating for and monitoring delivery of essential public services.

Mobilized citizens to scrutinize the government’s response to the pandemic and develop recommendations for improvement

Proposed evidence-based, data-driven reforms.
