NGO accountability mechanisms as a means of knowledge sharing
Dr Gloria Agyemang,

Accountability mechanisms offer the opportunity for sharing knowledge, through their role in the synthesis, contextualisation and transmission of information. Through an examination and analysis of both the different types of knowledge possessed by NGO fieldworkers in a developing country, and the extent and effectiveness with which these knowledge types are incorporated into accountability mechanisms between funders and donors, this research evaluates the potential role of NGO accountability mechanisms in furthering knowledge sharing between NGO fieldworkers and their funders.
