The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) has announced that Juan Pablo Guerrero will take the helm as the first director of this multistakeholder effort to improve the way that governments around the world manage public money. Guerrero joins GIFT from the Federal Institute for Access to Information & Data Protection (IFAI) in Mexico, where he was a founding information commissioner and is currently the secretary general.
Launched in 2011, GIFT brings together governments, donors, international financial institutions, civil society organizations, and others to set and promote shared global standards for how governments make budget information publicly available, engage citizens, and ensure strong oversight.
