Face the Public (FtP) is another social accountability mechaism applied by CCC-YES in promoting transparency and accountability of public representatives to the people. It is a platform that brings to the people an opportunity to ask the public representative’s questions with reference to the delivery against commitments made during election. FtPs also provide the opportunity for other matters of public concern to be reflected in the priority of the public representatives. Face the Public is a tool to create an enabling environment for local citizens to raise their voice and place their demands to the elected representatives of local government institutions.
FtPs are held complementary to the other interventions by CCC-YES such as Report Card, Satellite AI-Desk, community consultation etc. The specific objectives of the FtP are : raising local problems and demanding solutions/change; follow-up on commitments made by the representatives; future commitment from the representatives; sharing on rights and responsibilities of citizens; sharing challenges/limitations of the concerned authority and jointly discuss options; building relations and partnerships.
