About the Challenge
The Asian Development Bank (ADB), in collaboration with the Open Government Partnership (OGP), aims to explore how digital technology can be leveraged to strengthen the monitoring of COVID-19 related spending and improve feedback and grievance redressal mechanisms.
COVID-19 continues to threaten lives and livelihoods throughout the Asia Pacific region. In response, governments have taken economic measures to safeguard the health of its citizens and support the economy. Stimulus and safety net packages have been distributed, intended to reach citizens and businesses in need. Governments continue to plan and allocate significant additional resources to fund COVID-19 response and recovery. Thus, public spending must be transparent and monitored. Institutions must be made accountable to manage the economic impacts effectively, as well as duly respond to citizens’ needs.
This event has already occurred. The Asian Development Bank and the Open Government Partnership hosted a discussion on using digital technologies to strengthen monitoring and effectiveness of COVID-19 stimulus packages and safety net measures. Learn more about the Government Accountability…
