Accountability means ensuring that people are held responsible for what they say and do. In terms of advocacy, civil society can and should play an important role in holding their governments accountable to their agreements by ensuring that governments turn their commitments into concrete action, and monitoring and evaluating their progress in this.
In the CHOICE Theory of Change (ToC), the ‘accountability ceiling’ is the level of the ToC that CHOICE can be held accountable for achieving by external parties, like our donors and partners, and which CHOICE aims to measure our impact on.
