Now that civic engagement and accountability have moved online, there are many resources that development practitioners can draw upon to mobilise digital participation, and engage civil society as watchdog.

This webinar will illustrate the role that digital tools and platforms can play in supporting civil society and donors in this time of social distancing. Through a dialogue between the different actors involved, and the review of case-studies, we will explore how donors can tap into citizens as resource for digital monitoring.

We will also discuss the preconditions and technical considerations related to the successful implementation of these digital solutions.
