Following the engagement of some of our key executives by the World Bank in Participatory Budgeting advocacy works in East, West and Southern Africa and promotion of public and social accountability, ICDI began long-term strategic programs in championing grassroots advocacies/consultations towards filling the gap of creating further educational and re-orientation literatures that can promote cooperation and learning on good governance by means of providing conceptual guidance, well-researched information that can facilitate peer-learning between and amongst institutions, practitioners, policy-makers, civil societies and researchers on the subject of Participatory Budgeting, and by stimulating platforms where practitioners can contribute their innovations, lessons to overcome common challenges more effectively. Programmes are organized within this remit and several books and journal publications, academic and position papers are being published in this respect, as the organization continue to make a case for effective public accountability, in raising the bar of good-governance and wide-spread development.
Our overall and long-term strategic focus in this thrust will be on:
- Presentations of effective partnerships and collaborations amongst government, professionals and agencies; university researchers, relevant businesses, and NGO’s as well as grassroots citizen groups, to advance the practice of public accountability and inclusive government.
- Presentations and discussions of new research on public accountability and participatory budgeting as interdisciplinary domains that lies at the intersections of inclusive government, information technology, social and behavioral science, and the challenges and missions of government.
- Practice regarding public accountability and participatory budgeting projects implementations, and initiatives that bring together the researchers, the government and the governed communities, demonstrating the effectiveness and/or challenges of inclusive government, and offering best practices.
- Promoting positive leadership initiatives and practices
- Improving the education environment in United Kingdom, Africa and its environs
- Providing effective learning, alternative platforms for policy administration in areas of youth development, volunteerism, good governance, human rights, skills and vocational development as well as public opinion.
- Promoting new public management strategies with emphasis on participatory planning (participatory budgeting) and governance, and carry the message to the grassroots.
- Promoting and advocating the mundane mode of development governance, education, and evaluation in public sphere.
