The Global Partners Forum of the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA), the major global summit on social accountability for development, takes place annually at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC. It convenes the GPSA’s Global Partners Network consisting of practitioners and thought leaders across civil society, governments, academia and business, alongside World Bank professionals, all working to reduce the accountability gap – between what citizens want and what the governments actually do.
The Forum is a co-creation between the GPSA Secretariat and key global partners, and features World Bank leadership, including President Jim Yong Kim, prominent thought leaders and practitioners in the field, as well as GPSA grantees and partners. The Forum offers a variety of panels, workshops, small group discussions, networking sessions, and high-level plenary sessions. The Forum also features a "market-place" for showcasing good practices and important innovations.
This year, the Forum will be attended by Duncan Edwards, the Programme Manager for Making All Voices Count’s Research, Evidence and Learning (REL) component at the Institute of Development Studies.
