Community Monitoring of Development Projects
DevelopmentCheck is a user driven and solution oriented online tool for citizen feedback on the transparency, participation and effectiveness of development projects. The community identifies priority development projects to monitor and then collects data on these through project site visits, beneficiary surveys, information requests and photos. They enter the data for each project monitored into a questionnaire on DevelopmentCheck. They can also upload project documents such as the bill of quantity or contract if available, as well as photos or videos. DevelopmentCheck also enables cross-country comparison and collective advocacy. In other words, this data provides evidence to generate pressure for improved services and projects.
