Promoting Community-Based Village Supervision


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The revelation of cases of budget misappropriation in some regions demonstrates that Village Law supravillage supervisory practices experience shortcomings. This policy brief recommends a model of village supervision by the community that adopts four principles of social accountability: relevance, publicity, refutation, and enforcement; informing all the stages of village governance administration from planning to evaluation. In this model, supervision can be more substantive and effective, instead of being largely restricted to administrative matters, as is commonly the case.
