Grants to this Grantee
for a project to inform citizens about the quality of public service delivery  
The Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) promotes an active citizenry and more responsive government through better use of evidence to improve public policies and service delivery. This grant will fund CDD-Ghana’s I Am Aware program, which compiles and shares data on how district governments are performing in delivering key services including health, education, and water and sanitation. CDD-Ghana will work with other civil society organizations, government officials, national and local media, and citizen volunteers to raise awareness and take appropriate action to improve services. CDD-Ghana will strengthen its monitoring and evaluation capacity and share lessons with others in the transparency, participation, and accountability field.
for support to the Afrobarometer  
The Afrobarometer is a pan-African network that has been collecting data on citizens’ opinions about democracy, governance, public service quality, and related issues since 1999. The grant will support the next two rounds of the Afrobarometer opinion survey; continue to build the network’s capabilities to communicate findings to domestic and international users in media, government, civil society, and academia; and track how those findings are being used for policy planning and implementation at the country and global levels.
for a project to inform citizens about the quality of public service delivery  
This project tests the hypothesis that public service delivery for the poor may be improved by increasing citizen access to socioeconomic data at the district level in Ghana. The Ghana Center for Democratic Development will collect, analyze, archive, and disseminate data on the quality of public services alongside other publicly available information on quality of life and development outcomes. Empowered with this objective and comparable information, citizens, researchers, and the media will be able to evaluate whether public officials are effectively using public resources. The Center will then measure the degree to which citizen demands for greater public official accountability result in improved service delivery.
