Enhancing Community Participation in CDF Administration

Fostering Empowerment: Enhancing Community Participation in Constituency Development Fund (CDF) Administration for Lasting Change.

About The Project

The Commonwealth Project, implemented by Accountability for Accountability Advocates Zambia with support from the Commonwealth Foundation, seeks to enhance community participation in the administration of constituency development funds (CDF) across four provinces in Zambia: Eastern, Luapula, Muchinga, and Western. Through targeted capacity building initiatives, the project aims to empower local institutions and communities to effectively manage allocated funds and resources. The overarching objectives include improving the efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery in the specified provinces, fostering transparency and accountability in the management of public resources, and ultimately building trust between citizens and government institutions. The project endeavors to create a more inclusive and participatory approach to CDF administration, promoting a sense of ownership and responsibility among community members.
