Ethiopian Social Accountability Program 3

The Ethiopia Social Accountability Program Phase 3 (ESAP-3), being part of the Enhancing Shared Prosperity through Equitable Services (ESPES) program, seeks to improve basic public service delivery of local governments in assisting to make services better attuned to the needs and priorities of citizens.

The development objective of ESAP-3 is to support strengthening the Social Accountability (SA) system and mechanisms for enhanced service delivery in Ethiopia. Thus, the ultimate target is service improvement in any of the five identified basic sectors where SA is considered a critical means to intervene. The more specific objective of ESAP-3 is to enhance the dialogue and feedback loop between basic service users and service providers on the quality and accessibility of services.
