The guidelines incorporate Forward Accountability (FA) background, guiding principles, and implementation techniques and practices appropriate for different organizational levels and situations. The document is not completely exhaustive, but provides guidance on a few different approaches for implementing FA which have proven as successful in CARE’s experience. The guidelines content is based on many different exercises conducted to
date in CARE Ethiopia’s Country, Field, and Project Offices over the last few years.
The guidelines serve as a tool for improving services, increasing transparency, ensuring participation, promoting inclusiveness, and collecting feedback in order to inform future decisions.
