The Innovations for Social Accountability in Cambodia (ISAC) project is working to improve public service delivery in six provinces of Cambodia and in the capital city of Phnom Penh through the application of social accountability tools, including technological innovations that inform, empower and engage citizens.
ISAC is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented by FHI 360, with partners Development Alternatives Incorporated and Internews. ISAC supports demand-side social accountability activities through grantee partners in 62 sangkats (administrative units) in the six provinces and capital city: Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Chhnang, Kampot, Kandal, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
ISAC improves citizen access to information on government decisions and processes and on how public funds are planned, spent and invested. It strengthens citizens’ participation and collective initiative to increase accountability for public services and to utilize technology that enables citizen engagement. The project also incorporates education and outreach to raise awareness of accountability and integrity in public administration.
