Deepening voice and accountability to fight poverty : a dialogue of communication implementers (English)

About 80 representatives from government, civil society, think tanks and media organizations in developing countries, as well as representatives from multilateral and bilateral donor agencies, academic institutions, and international civil society organizations participated in a dialogue about deepening voice and accountability to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of national poverty reduction strategies. The purpose of the conference was to bring together the experience and perspectives of disparate actors in the policy community who are focusing on poverty reduction to coalesce around areas of mutual interest. The objective of the conference was to begin to break through the ‘iron triangle’ of technocrats in government, civil society and donor agencies that currently defines, and in many ways constrains, the development process; to amend the prevailing development paradigm to more effectively address issues of deepening voice and accountability; and to recognize the contribution of information and communication processes to that agenda.
