The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA Kenya) held a capacity building workshop on Citizen Report Card and Public Expenditure Tracking Survey between 20th and 22nd March 2017 in Nakuru County. This  was one of the capacity building workshops on social accountability: tools and initiatives targeting county based CSOs and county government officers. Participants were taken through the processes of developing a Citizen Report Card and Public Expenditure Tracking Survey. The objective of the workshop was to increase the capacity of project implementing officers of Center for Transformational Leadership (CTL) and Center for Enhanced Democracy and Good Governance (CEDGG) to upscale their social accountability initiatives for engagement with policy makers in the counties. The outcome of the three day highly interactive and practical workshop was initiation of the plan for joint development of a citizen report card on service delivery in Technical and Vocational Training in Nakuru County, and Expenditure tracking in the health sector in Baringo County by IEA, CEDGG and CTL. The findings of both studies to be concluded within the year will be used for engagement with policy makers in the target counties and at the national level in the project implemented by IEA title: Promoting Social Economic Rights through Participatory and Accountable Governance part of a wider Uraia Trust project Rooting Democracy in Kenya through an informed citizenry, Phase II.
