Global Partnership for Social Accountability Continues to Grow, with New Contributions from Dominican Republic, Ford Foundation

The Dominican Republic has become the first country in the global South to join the group of donors who are funding the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA), a program launched by the World Bank Group in 2012 to strengthen public-sector performance and meet governance challenges in developing countries. The Government of the Dominican Republic has joined such GPSA donors as the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Foundations and the Aga Khan Foundation USA, in a reflection of the government’s commitment to create stronger social accountability mechanisms and to pursue governance reforms as a means to end poverty.
