The Economic Watch - Volume 1 2017.pdf
Welcome dear reader to the November 2017 edition of The Economic Watch. This is a forum where we share with you some of the highlights and impact our work of promoting participatory good economic governance is having in the country. We are hopeful that you will find this edition informative so that you have a better perspective of the role Malawi Economic Justice (MEJN) plays in improving peoples livelihood in the country. We pride ourselves at putting ideas into practice and I hope that this will be clear to you as you flip through the pages. In this edition, our stories have focused on transparency and accountability successes while pointing out challenges along the various governance structures in our communities especially at district, constituency and village level. We have streamlined our work in this way because we know that decentralization requires a bottom up approach where people in the villages are prioritizing their needs and the central government comes to support the plans. As such citizens need to have robust oversight capacity especially in financial and budget matters to make sure that all resources intended for project implementation are trickling down to the beneficiaries. It will therefore be such a great honour, if you could get a lesson or two from our work and then commit yourself to taking part in this exciting journey of promoting transparency and accountability among duty bearers from lowest to highest levels of power .
