5 months ago Access Info Europe, the Centre for Law and Democracy and International Budget Partnership started a global project on budget transparency called The 6 Question Campaign.
The 6 Question Campaign is the most extensive transparency monitoring exercise that has ever been conducted. A total of 84 organisations across the world presented the same 6 questions to their national public institutions between February and June 2010. The point is also to analyse government spending on maternal health, development cooperation and the environment. The results of the investigation will be produced in the form of five reports, one on each of these three areas, and the other two on budgetary transparency and on access to information in general. The latter will be produced by Access Info Europe and the Centre for Law and Democracy.
These results will be presented at the World Summit on the Millennium Development Goals, which will take place between the 20th and 22nd of September 2010 in New York. Between the 22nd and 28th of September we will be presenting and disseminating the reports in various countries with events such as press conferences; thus taking advantage of International Right to Know Day, which takes place on the 28th September each year.
