When Do Citizens Engage?

Presented at the MAVC G-Watch Forum Workshop

on Doing Citizen Engagement Differently

By Rorie Fajardo- Jarilla, IWPR Asia Programmes Coordinator 

17 August 2017
Citizen Action Network for
Accountability – Scale Up
(CANA – Scale Up)
•  An initiative of the Institute for War
and Peace Reporting (IWPR) in
building fiscal literacy & capacity
among community-based groups
citizens to make their local
governments responsive &
accountable
•  17-month project with support from
Making All Voices Count
CANA-Scale Up: Roots & Aims
•  Helps transform citizens from passive
spectators of local government behavior
into active agents of positive change
through community organising,
advocacy, capacity building and
mentoring, information, education,
media and technology
•  Believes that ordinary Filipino citizens
can more effectively monitor, shape,
and engage their local government if
they know how it works.
CANA-Scale Up: Roots & Aims
•  When they know how governments work
•  When, as government service consumers,
they want to improve quality of life thru
these services.
•  When they want to contribute to the
success of government’s work
“Citizens know what works best for the
community. They know the issues and
needs of the people.”
When Do
Citizens
Engage? The
IWPR
Experience
• People engage in a professional,
disinterested, & fact-based way.
• Government sees the people as
partners for change.
• Both people & government use tools
and processes which they understand
and ‘trust in.’
When Does
Citizen
Engagement
Lead to
Responsive &
Accountable
Governance?
Read, ask, read again,
and understand how our
government operates.
Learn.
MAY MAGAGAWA KA!
Conclusion
“We can do something
for the betterment of
community as long as
we work together,
understand and listen to
one another, and respect
each other. We can make
change happen!”
