Transparency and accountability are two essential elements of good governance. Hivos’ partners in the South work to enforce these principles through a bottom-up, citizen-led approach that concentrates on a citizen’s right to information, a government’s duty to deliver essential services, collective election monitoring and anti-corruption campaigns.

In South Africa Hivos works with partners such as Right 2 Know, Corruption Watch, Iliso Labahlali and Social Justice Coalition to root out corrupt practices which are often deeply embedded in the political and legal systems. They advocate for an open and accountable government, fight public sector corruption, support the development of a clean bureaucracy, educate citizens to access government information, and help communities demand and obtain effective municipal service delivery.
