TPA Now! A Paper Series on Transparency, Participation and Accountability is a platform for practitioners, researchers and action strategists to present evidence and reflect on the practice and research on strategic TPA and to broaden awareness on the importance of accountability in governance. It is an initiative of Government Watch (G-Watch), in partnership with Accountability Research Center (ARC) to advance the discourse and practice of ‘strategic TPA.’

The 4th TPA Now! paper is written by a Moro G-Watcher who spearheaded the organizing of a G-Watch local core group in Marawi City. In this piece, Isnihayah Binumbaran reflects on the meaning of accountability from a Moro perspective, citing relevant ideas and concepts in Islam, and embedding its significance in the context of Muslim Mindanao. To demonstrate the urgency of accountability in the context of Muslim Mindanao, the paper shares the initiatives undertaken by the G-Watch core group in Lanao on its first year, including the highlights of its most recent monitoring activity, covering the government’s social amelioration program under its COVID-19 response.
