The first global assembly for Budget Transparency, Accountability & Participation, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
On 18 November 2011 in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, nearly 100 civil society groups from as many countries including CBGA, NCDHR and 12 international organizations, like the International Budget Partnership, Greenpeace, and the ONE Campaign, will launch a global effort to make public budgets transparent, participatory, and accountable.
The effort centers on building an integrated and vibrant movement of organizations that will work at the local, national, and international level to promote government budgeting that is open and accountable to the public.
The organizations at the core of this initiative may work in different countries and on different issues but their shared experience shows that when civil society and the public are informed and involved they can improve budget decisions and outcomes, literally transforming lives in the process.
Paul Divakar will be a plenary speaker at the conference. For more details please visit the website www.makebudgetspublic.org . For the declaration please click here.
