For The Budget Transparency Initiative Project In Uganda

Overview
In collaboration with the Ugandan Ministry of Finance, the Ugandan think tank ACODE, and the Overseas Development Institute, Innovations for Poverty Action is launching the Budget Transparency Initiative. At the national level, the Initiative will make location-specific budget allocation and expenditure data publicly available. At the local level, the Initiative will support local councilors and community group leaders to monitor government spending and to provide feedback on the quality of public services. The project is designed to strengthen the responsiveness and accountability of local government officials to citizens and ultimately to improve the quality of local public services like education and health care.
