Fiscal and Budget Transparency

The topic of ‘fiscal transparency and accountability’ was first chosen as a priority in 2013 by the PEMPAL Executive, which is represented by senior government levels from 16 of the 21 member countries in the three thematic COPs of budget, treasury and internal audit. The topic was chosen due to its relevance to central finance agencies and its potential to improve governance. A Budget Literacy and Transparency Working Group was formed in 2015 to learn from international experience with raising budget literacy among citizens and budget openness and accessibility.
