Fondazione Etica has been admitted as a partner of the Global Partnership for Social Accountability, organism of the World Bank, based in Washington D.C.

The GPSA’s Global Partners are organizations from civil society, the donor community, private sector and academia that have expressed their endorsement for the objectives and strategy of the GPSA. Global Partners collaborate with the GPSA on knowledge-exchange, research, and technical assistance.

The GPSA benefits from partnering with these organizations in many different ways, depending on the nature of the organizations. While some partners share lessons from their practical experience, others provide academic knowledge, funding, and networking; all these contributions help to advance the objectives of the program.

Over 300 partners are involved, including governments, institutions and associations
