Aid and Budget Transparency in Mozambique
The Informal Governance Group and Alliance 2015 have just released a working paper, ‘Aid and Budget Transparency in Mozambique: Constraints for Civil Society, the Parliament and the Government’.
Providing a valuable case study and argument for the necessity of aid transparency, the study documents and analyses the problems faced by civil society, the Parliament and the Government of Mozambique when doing work related to the budget with less-than-transparent aid.
Mozambique is currently implementing some initiatives to improve transparency so that the budget becomes more effective in reducing poverty and promoting development. The study aims to increase debate about what must be done for citizens to be able to improve, influence and monitor the spending of public funds.
