Constructive Engagement

An effective and sound public sector depends on the existence of organized civil groups and sustained citizen involvement in the public realm.  The extent and quality of this involvement depends largely on how government and citizen groups regard each other.  When government and stakeholders regard each other with trust, they can become more effective partners in governance and development.

ANSA EAP seeks to create the space for citizen groups and government to work together using culturally appropriate tools and approaches to enable stakeholders to fulfill their mandates.
