LTA Resource Centre – The new platform for Civil Society accountability

Posted by civilsocietyindex on September 16, 2010

As repeatedly pinpointed by the CSI, Transparency and Accountability of civil society organisations are essential for the Legitimacy, sustainability, effectiveness and protection of their activities. Now more than ever.

Through its Legitimacy, Transparency and Accountability (LTA) programme, CIVICUS wants to improve the public trust and the credibility of non-governmental organisations by helping them enhance their accountability systems and structures.

With the ultimate aim to bridge, connect and convene LTA practitioners, researchers and academics and guide civil society organizations to the resources they need, CIVICUS LTA Programme now offers the brand new LTA Resource Centre. The new platform offers access to various resources (articles and reports, case studies, guides and frameworks, legal resources, statistics and surveys, etc) and the latest LTA news around the globe. But it stands above all as a valuable community of practice, by offering organisations the opportunity to add their own resources and showcase best practices of CSOs’ accountability within the sector.

The LTA Resource Center has already aroused the interest of many civil society stakeholders and will undeniably establish itself as an essential platform for the third sector.
