Sweden will continue to act as a driving force to secure implementation of the Building Block on Transparency through its role as co-chair. We will support ongoing multi-stakeholder partnerships on accountability, predictability and transparency, and different actors’ work on effectiveness, results and transparency. Further, it will be done by ensuring involvement of a wide range of actors including donors, partner countries, multilateral organisations, civil society and the private sector. We will ensure that work is carried out in a coordinated and effective manner to ensure the transparency agenda is taken forward the best way possible to accomplish steady progress. A comprehensive approach to existing initiatives is essential. Sweden will promote the inclusion of comprehensiveness in the work of the Building Block.
