Public accountability and women’s participation in Mali

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2018-03-23
Duration to: 2022-09-30
Total budget (US Dollar): $3000000
DAC Income classification: Least Developed Countries

This project seeks to improve accountability in Mali’s public sector by engaging citizens, especially women, to create responsible, transparent and inclusive governance. At the national level, large amounts of public revenue are still poorly managed, which negatively affects the accessibility and quality of government services for citizens, particularly women and girls. Also, civil society, including women’s organizations, is seldom included in public accountability. Project activities include the following: (1) building the capacity of the Office of the Auditor General of Mali (BVGM) to produce and disseminate audit reports that take gender equality into account; (2) providing support to the Ministry of Justice in its efforts to fight fraud and corruption; (3) building the capacity of civil society organizations, particularly women’s organizations, to use reports and recommendations from the BVGM and the Ministry of Justice to defend their rights and promote more responsible and inclusive governance.
