The Population Program's recent advocacy efforts have focused on addressing inefficient and ineffective uses of funding for reproductive health, including the lack of transparency and accountability in budgeting and expenditures at the country level. This contribution to the Transparency and Accountability Program will allow it to select about two organizations per year with particular interest in addressing issues ranging from supplies stockouts to staff absenteeism in the reproductive health sector. TAP will provide the organizations with technical assistance on using specific methodologies such as expenditure tracking studies to generate evidence for advocacy. This collaborative grant with Global Development helps to illustrate potential synergies in the integrated program, and the possibilities for sector-specific applications of Global Development's transparency and accountability work. Please refer to Global Development's docket for more information about this grant.

for development of accountability options for Family Planning Summit commitments
This renewal grant would allow Results for Development (R4D) to continue to develop options to strengthen monitoring and accountability mechanisms for the commitments made at the Family Planning Summit in July 2012 (FP2020). At the Summit, donors and governments pledged $4.6 billion to provide 120 million additional women with family planning information and services by the year 2020. R4D plans refine the options for accountability mechanisms based on consultations with key stakeholders, and generate support for funding and implementation of the emerging final recommendations.
