The information in this toolkit is for reference purposes only and is meant to serve as a guide for users that want to develop a grievance mechanism. CAO, in consultation with experts in this field, prepared this toolkit to serve as a starting point for users to develop a grievance mechanism that addresses local conditions and capacity. As with any guide, successful implementation depends on many factors beyond what can be read in a document, and CAO takes no responsibility for the success of implementation of this guide in a particular context, nor does it endorse any grievance mechanism that has been established through the use of this guide.
