Description

The project is aimed at strengthening systems of oversight within parliaments, particularly at the level of the portfolio committees. The goal is to have portfolio committees engage more meaningfully on issues within sectors they are responsible for, enhance the effectiveness with which they interrogate departmental reports and use evidence to back their oversight work. The project works with members of parliament, support staff, and capacity building implementation partners through various approached including training, technical assistance, cross-learning and sharing opportunities and research.
