The objective of the Accountability Fund is to contribute to a strong and lively civil society which holds the public and private sector accountable. Activities resulting from this fund should be specifically directed towards capacity development or protecting the operating environment of local groups and communities, strengthening their ability to participate in the decision-making process.

There are no thematic restrictions so long as this policy aim is met. Activities are preferably focused on capacity development of the lobbying and advocacy skills of local organizations that target the poorest, vulnerable and excluded groups. Proposals supporting organisations working for women’s rights and gender equality are especially encouraged. Service delivery cannot be financed.
