Media and Publications

The GGLN and its members are enthusiastically committed to knowledge-production and information-sharing.

Isandla Institute

Written by Isandla Institute, Chapter 4 of the State of Local Governance publication encompasses a paper that attempts to reflect on and learn from the experience of utilising accountability and collaboration in tandem, through the Accounting for Basic Services project, in the local governance space.

Isandla Institute has developed a tracking system, the Planning for Informality web-tool, which enables communities and civil society organisations to monitor government commitments and delivery in informal settlement upgrading.
