    • Project

      This project by COSE – Enhancing Access to Social Protection Programmes through Older Persons Engagement – integrates the social accountability approach in influencing local government’s policies and spending on social protection in two provinces in Luzon. It runs for two years and works closely with Older Persons Organisations (OPOs) in three target municipalities. The project pilots the creation of Older Citizens Monitoring Committees (OCMC), with accompanying monitoring methodology and tools.

      COSE is committed to developing bottom-up social accountability mechanisms to improve the quality of Philippines’ social protection programmes through minimising intentional and unintentional errors by staff and claimants. Accountability mechanisms are integrated in the project to address poor ‘customer service’, leakages of public funds and streamline administrative challenges across the target areas.
