Strengthening systems of democratic governance to ensure accountability, justice, and inclusion
At Chemonics, we believe that the challenges we face today are best solved by placing local partners at the forefront of development efforts – local ownership, knowledge sharing, expertise, and experience are prerequisites for sustainable development results. From our decades of working in more than 150 countries around the world, we know that effective and accountable institutions are critical to alleviating poverty and achieving sustainable results in all sectors. We support governments, civil society organizations, independent media, and local communities to strengthen governance systems that are more transparent and accountable to their citizens. We support Integrity Networks in Peru to increase citizen oversight and improve the transparency of public investments on a subnational level. We engage with diverse stakeholders in Ukraine, Kosovo, and Colombia to provide multiple pathways to justice through people-centered approaches. Our programs pursue a higher standard of transparency and accountability of leaders and institutions, and they protect and promote universal human rights.
