The World Bank’s Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) convenes 47 governments and more than 260 civil society and private sector partners to solve governance challenges around the world.  Today, the GPSA seeks to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by helping citizens and governments to address what Amina Mohamed, the UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser on the SDGs, has called “the one knot we haven’t tied”: Accountability.
 
Participants will be encouraged to focus on the question “How can citizens help drive the accountable implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals?”  Participants are welcome to draw on examples from their own contexts.  Outcomes of the discussion will help shape GPSA’s scale-up strategy and its contribution to the SDGs.
