Session Abstract (150 words): 

The session will generate and share the emerging results from four years of work with select CSOs partners in Nigeria working to influence reforms that improve transparency, accountability and good governance. Focusing on the actions of the CSOs and the results generated, the presentation will seek to share emerging trends and learning from the work, focusing on ‘what seems to be working’ and what the challenges are. The session will then practicalize this through a skills-building session that seeks to rapidly familiarise practitioners with the framework and tools of the project, enable them to practice how to use the tools in low-resource settings and (using the project-developed Management Information System), demonstrate how the activities and outcomes can be used to establish and validate evidence, generate journey maps, and discern key trends about what works in terms of influencing policy.
