GPSA/Dominican Republic: Call for Proposals to Tackle Service Delivery Problems through Social Participation

Presentation :

The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) is inviting non – state non-profit entities authorized to operate in the Dominican Republic, to submit proposals for projects of social oversight, individually or through consortia implemented.

This call is part of a partnership between the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and builds on previous initiatives led by the World Bank and supported by the GPSA, such as the IPAC, an anti-corruption initiative with heavy civil society engagement, and a strong GPSA portfolio already under implementation.
