In Liberia, the Citizen Helpdesks are working in two areas where large gold mining concessions have led to a variety of accountability challenges. The Community Frontline Associates (CFAs) are working with citizens, gathering information about key concerns- that range from issues related to relocation compensation to environmental degradation to corruption.
The helpdesks are acting as a platform for shared understanding between communities, the local government and the concession companies; and as the basis for collective solutions to shared challenges in the process of natural resource management.
FAIR FACTS – Issue 123
FAIR FACTS is an open platform that connects citizens, leaders and institutions; and exchanges authentic information to tackle misinformation and popular myths around elections in Nepal. The ongoing elections demand quick, scientific, and fair information around the electoral process, participation, and candidacy. With FAIR FACTS we build an ecosystem of changemakers and use the power of real stories and voices from all corners of the country for an election mechanism that is fair and equitable. An election is not just about voting but also about participation and liberty of all – a basic human right that celebrates democracy at its core. To help defend democracy in Nepal, we track facts, share helpful information, and build unlikely networks.
