Supporting civil society during the Covid-19 pandemic: The potentials of online collaborations for social accountability
There are significant corruption risks during times of crisis. Civil society has an important role to play in ensuring funds to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic reach their destination. Donors and multilateral organisations should consider establishing digital accountability networks to support this effort. The current crisis presents challenges for civil society; however, there are also new opportunities for it to embrace digital civic engagement as an anti-corruption initiative. For this reason, the report “Supporting civil society during the Covid-19 pandemic: The potentials of online collaborations for social accountability” covers the following topics: the current challenges for civil society; the opportunities for civil society during the pandemic; examples of digital civic participation; considerations for establishing digital accountability networks; and how to support civil society anti-corruption and social accountability initiatives during the pandemic.
