The IBP website is a clearinghouse of information, resources, and publications on government budget transparency and accountability, and how civil society and citizens can use budget analysis and advocacy influence budget policies and monitor implementation to ensure that public funds are used effectively to meet the needs of the people, especially the poor. On this page public officials can find resources that are most relevant to their efforts to open their budget systems, engage civil society and the public in budget processes, and strengthen oversight and public finance management. However, this is not an exhaustive list of the resources that are available on the website, so we encourage you to further browse the website and visit our online library for more.
This page includes links to publications and other resources for government officials, international advocacy efforts around transparency and budgets, and information about the IBP’s Mentoring Governments Program. We will update this page regularly with new resources, so be sure to bookmark it and share it with your colleagues.
