FISCAL OPENNESS ACCELERATOR PROJECT
Fiscal Transparency for Public Participation for Better Use of Public Resources
The US government is financing the pilots for five African countries (Benin, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa) and the GIFT network is seeking additional funds to include Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Mexico and the Philippines in a simultaneous effort.
Full scope of the project:
Support governments in the development of participation mechanisms that can help their governments engage in budget processes that better reflect the inputs and needs of citizens. During the development we will document the process to evaluate the impact and disseminate good practices and lessons learned.
Additionally, with the storytelling we seek to create better engagement and visibility of the pilots. The storytelling will encourage other government innovators to take the same path and will allow them to have a glimpse of the process the need to undergo.
