This toolkit explores what accountability means for civil society organisations (CSOs) in a South African context.
The aims of the toolkit are:
- to recognise and lay down the foundation for working with common principles of accountability for CSOs in a constitutional democracy;
- to identify current good accountability practices that exist among CSOs and identify areas where capacity needs building in the sector and further support is required; and
- to provide practical steps, tools and templates that CSOs can use to realise accountability in their day-to-day activities and interactions with stakeholders.
This resource was developed by the Commonwealth Foundation and the Co-operative for Research and Education (CORE), South Africa.
