Ibrahim Tanko Amidu
Ibrahim Tanko Amidu brought together development practitioners and CSOs to learn and support each other in implementing new participatory approaches to development. His greatest achievement has been focusing STAR-Ghana on supporting the piloting of innovative strategies linking citizens' voices into governance processes. This has led to the adoption by the Parliament of social accountability approaches in its interface with citizens, while CSOs have increased their capacity to engage with government and promote social accountability approaches in the governance of social services delivery.
