Governance & Accountability
COME's Governance & Accountability (G&A) program changes how Kenyan citizens participate in decision-making that affects them. We achieve this by deploying our interactive radio method involving decision-makers, shaped by audience input (via SMS, instant messaging and social media), to create meaningful spaces for public dialogue. Connecting citizens, authorities, civil society and others in vibrant public discussion, COME Initiative fosters crucial citizen-authority encounters where issues are addressed, action is identified, and those in power are held to account. We then turn this citizen voice into timely and compelling evidence at scale. We tell citizen evidence-based stories and support decision-makers through collaborative insight generation and ideas for action.
