About GAP and GGCT

The Gambia Accountability Project (GAP) is a project implemented by Gambia Participates in partnership with the International Republican Institute (IRI) that looks to the use of monitoring tools to collect and analyze government data in order to track performance of identified government institutions/departments and as well as use performance results for advocacy. The GAP project will use community Scorecards, and other research methods to assess and measure the performance of government service provider institutions like NAWEC using measurable indicators.

Through the GAP, Gambia Participates aims to amplify the voices of marginalized communities through a systematic process which creates collective action for these communities to demand social change, and follow up with the national and/or local government institutions to provide quality services to its users. This will in turn promote open governance and successfully fostering government/CSO and citizen collaboration to improve service delivery in The Gambia.

The “Gambia Government Commitment Tracker” is a platform developed through this project to provide data on government commitments which will be publicly accessible and also be used for tracking government action plans, projects etc. The goal of the platform is to establish a framework through which the continuous monitoring of government activities is possible as it relates to the improvement of the quality of life of citizens through its various projects and services.
