Start Dates of Empowerment and Accountability Projects and their Regional Distribution

The Empowerment and Accountability policy frame came into effect in 2011. There is an overall trend in more Empowerment and Accountability-related projects being implemented after the policy came into effect, as the year with the largest total number of Empowerment and Accountability-related projects was 2012.

In East and Central Africa a total of 15 Empowerment and Accountability projects were initiated in 2010 and the same number again in 2011. However, in 2012, after the policy frame came into effect, over double the number of new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects were started – 34. In 2013, 27 new projects were implemented in East and Central Africa.

In West and Southern Africa 20 new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects began in 2010 but only 14 in 2011. This number increased in 2012 to 29 new projects, then dropped to 18 new projects started in 2013.

Additionally, in the Middle East and North Africa just 2 new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects were initiated in 2010 and 6 in 2011, but there was a large jump in 2012 when 21 new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects began.

A similar trend can be observed in Asia and the Caribbean; 5 new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects were started in 2010 and 9 in 2011 but 16 were initiated in 2012 and 11 in 2013.

In Western Asia, the increase in new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects can be viewed a little earlier; in 2010 just 3 new projects began, but 2011 saw 13 new projects initiated and 2012 saw 12 new projects initiated. The number of new Empowerment and Accountability-related projects dropped again in 2013.

It should be noted that data for the year 2014 is incomplete, as project data was collected mid-way through the year, in the summer of 2014.
