Public participation toolkit: building effective civil society engagement with public officials

Democracy Works Foundation (DWF) has learned and equally shared much knowledge through the project to bridge the gap between civil society organisations (CSOs) and public officials, in partnership with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD), co-funded by the European Union (EU).

The project, seeking to promote democracy and good governance by strengthening CSOs and political representatives’ ability to hold ongoing and sustainable public participation in democratic institutions, is called  Civil Society Organisations’ Participation in Provincial Legislatures (CSPPL). has generated learnings and resources that may benefit CSSPL Partner, those working in similar institutions or others operating in the sector, generally.

For that reason, the CSPPL project has collected this material and collated it into this DWF toolkit. It is our hope that it may be of value to community organisations pursuing public engagement and community driven oversight and accountability to fulfil needs of societies within which they work. Should this resource provide value, we have achieved our goal.
