BCOP BLTWG Workshop on Budget Openness Measures Targeting Different External Stakeholders with GIFT

Zagreb, Croatia

On December 7-8, BCOP held a workshop on budget openness, in partnership with the Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT). BCOP members selected this topic of budget openness measures targeting different categories of the public (including citizen budget material, budget literacy measures, and public participation measures) as the current priority topic for the Budget Literacy and Transparency Working Group. After having mostly implemented general citizens’ budgets and other initial budget openness measures, PEMPAL member countries recognize the need to address diverse informational requirements and encourage active participation of various segments of the public/external stakeholders.

This event was organized within BCOP’s Budget Literacy and Transparency Working Group (BLTWG).
