Vertically integrated civil society monitoring and advocacy in the Philippines

Empowering communities for housing and community services

Published on 1 October 2016

Civil society monitoring and advocacy that is vertically integrated across different levels of action is one strategy for seeking government accountability. This case study summary is one of a set of seven from the Philippines. Each discusses a civil society campaign in a different sector, and draws out lessons for vertical integration. This summary discusses a civil society umbrella organisation which organised poor communities around common basic issues through building a partnership with the government, enhanced community-based self-help initiatives, and initiated pro-poor legislation at both the local and national government levels.
