BUILDING CIVIC LEADERSHIP
 
 
Strengthening civic action for promotion of social accountability has been one of the strategies. In eight talukas of Gujarat and one block of Rajasthan about 500 citizen leaders were trained on role of citizens in public participation, accountable local governance andin addressing social justice issues. The citizen leaders are trained on issues of citizenship and governance relevance of decentralisation, community mobilisation for social accountability through social audit, report card and monitoring of basic services, process for effective implementation of NREGA, RTI, and protection against Domestic Violence Act. The noted Gandhian and freedom fighter Shri Chunibhai Vaidya and eminent journalist and social worker Shri Indukumar Jani felicitated some of the citizen leaders on December 12, 2009. A book on initiatives by citizen leaders to improve the access to basic services and to demand for transparent and accountable governing institutions was published.

Our experience of promoting civic engagement in urban development has been documented and published for use by development practitioners.
