Ethiopia Social Accountability Program


ESAP’s development objective is to support strengthening the SA system and mechanisms for enhanced service delivery in Ethiopia. To that end, ESAP’s focus is on the five pro-poor sectors. These include education, health, agriculture, WASH and rural roads. 


Recognizing that citizens may have higher priorities related to other sectors, the ESAP3 SA approach does facilitate the identification of such priorities and their processing through the SA cycle so that (local) governments are aware and can take action in response.
