This session will focus on recent innovative work on the role of citizen empowerment and civic engagement on service delivery in countries including Indonesia and Tanzania. The facilitators will present evidence and experiences from the work of Twaweza, the Open Democracy Advice Center, and the Transparency for Development project, followed by an interactive discussion highlighting the role of citizen engagement in social actions to improve health, education, and other outcomes.
