A Resource book on the G-Watch monitoring experience
This resource book distills seven years of Government Watch’s experience in monitoring government agencies. In those seven years, G-Watch monitored the Departments of Health, Social Welfare and Development, Education, Public Works and Highways, and the Bureau of Customs, from medicines to school buildings, highways to vaccines, milk to used clothing. From the agencies and affected officials, the results of GWatch’s monitoring has elicited defensiveness, anger, hostility, denial and in several, memorable instances, openness and efforts to change. These are the price – and the rewards - of promoting accountability and exercising citizenship.
