The International Budget Partnership collaborates with civil society around the world to analyze and influence public budgets in order to reduce poverty and improve the quality of governance.
IBP, along with civil society partners from more than 50 countries and 15 international NGOs, has signed onto a letter calling on the Secretary-General of the United Nations to include transparency, participation, and accountability at the heart of the post-2015 development framework. Citing a recent IBP brief on the topic, organizations such as ONE, Oxfam International, and Publish What You Fund stated that there is increasing evidence that budget transparency, expenditure monitoring, and accountability are crucial to ensure that the framework is adequately funded and achieves its goals.
