This year, the Global Partners Forum’s central theme was ‘Social Accountability for Development Impact.’ At the Forum, a deep dive into thinking about initiatives – both citizen and state-led – that revolve around the trends of Learning for Adaptive Management, Constructive Engagement to Co-Production and Inclusive Institutions was held to help move the field to the next phase. Breaking silos and working jointly to sort out the challenges has the potential to be transformative and strategically strengthen the social accountability field.
