Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? South Africa continues to champion fiscal transparency, but fundamental issues persist with connecting transparency to meaningful public participation that has the potential to be transformative. The link between transparency and accountability is weak, particularly at the subnational level. The links between transparency and accessibility/ use/ inclusion also continues to be weak.

What is the commitment? Fiscal transparency that is transformative and inclusive of traditionally marginalised groups and communities across South Africa.

How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Transparency for greater engagement, accountability and effective proactive management of public finances in a manner that ensures better access to relevant information by marginalized groups and thus better enabling them to hold government to account.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This commitment will enhance open government and enable better civic participation especially by marginalised groups.
