The Say Website: A website which provides you with information on Zambian legislation
This website provides you with information on Zambian legislation such as Acts and Policies as well as Social Accountability Tools to hold duty bearers to account.
Information for better social accountability! The Social Accountability Website provides ordinary citizens and civil society practitioners with access to full texts of Zambian legislation (Acts, policies) as well as publications and records (Audit reports, budgets, service charters, speeches etc.) in a wide range of thematic areas. These areas range from education, health and agriculture to disability, enterprise and Constituency Development Funds. The main aspects of each thematic area – what are the relevant laws, what are Zambian Civil Society Organisations doing in this field –are summarized in concise and easy-to-read factsheets, which can also be downloaded as pdf files. The website aims to make it easier for citizens and CSOs to access information on citizens’ rights, including the quality of service they should expect to receive from public institutions.
Sharing Tools for better social accountability! In addition to information on Zambian legislation, the Social Accountability Website provides a platform for CSOs to share their Social Accountability Tools, research reports, as well as cartoons and popularization materials on each thematic area. Through this platform CSOs have the chance to see what their counterparts are doing to hold duty bearers to account and to exchanges ideas, experiences and success stories through different discussion forums. Ensuring that CSOs have access to tools to hold duty-bearers accountable can lead to improved governance and better services. Supporting them to network virtually to update one another and secure feedback on their tools and reports will facilitate coalition-building and stronger quality CSO work.
