Problems and Purpose

ALP Meetings use a Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP) framework to prioritise the implementation of projects and to reinforce the project management skills of participants. 



Participant Recruitment and Selection


Deliberation, Decisions, and Public Interaction

The ALP Meeting methodolgy was used in Santa, Northwest Cameroon to engage youth in the development of a Local Economic Development Plan. Together, council workers, city councillors, and youth leaders used the guiding principles of Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP) to review the council budget, re-prioritize projects and activities for implementation, and design the management of community projects. TAP helped the the team reflect on their priorities and determine which projects could help alleviate poverty in the municipality, yield income for the Council, be sustainable, and ensure adequate budgeting for educational purposes. The inclusion of youth representatives ensured their voices were heard and, subsequently, project and activities which addressed youth-specific needs were not overlooked. Overall, TAP-guided reflection and deliberation enabled participants to improve their ability to plan, execute, evaluate, draw lessons, and use learnings from community actions.[1]
