About Community-Based Monitoring

Community-Based Monitoring is a project by Black Sash to promote the use of community-based monitoring.

We are creating a space to collect, store and share the CBM work done by Black Sash, our Community Partners and many others. Together, we're building a practice of community oversight and state accountability.
