Deepening Democracy through Strengthening Citizen Participation and Accountable Governance (DDAG)

This is a joint UN flagship programme whose purpose is to deepen democracy, strengthen inclusive citizen participation and accountability in governance.
The programme builds on the foundation laid by the two predecessor programmes (Programme for Strengthening Good Governance/PSGG and Inclusive Participation in Governance/IPG).
It focuses on three main areas: evidence based governance; reinforcing inclusive participation; and strengthening accountability structures.
It places   special emphasis on media-sector reforms to enhance accountability as well as gender and human rights as tools to strengthen citizen participation.
The UN partners in the Programme are UNDP, UN Women, UN Volunteers and Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
