In Central America, some countries are sustaining progress, while others are falling behind on accountable budget practices.
Cover for Regional Report Central America

As is the case in every round, the 2021 survey represents the collective work of our global network of researchers in each country. This round, however, we did something different. We leaned into partnership and worked hand-in-hand with a select group of partners to co-author our global report and eight regional reports. This new approach has allowed us to benefit from the rich insights of our global partners and present key recommendations to spur action at the global, regional and country level. 

In Central America, some countries are sustaining progress, while others are falling behind on accountable budget practices. Notably, El Salvador experienced the biggest decline in budget transparency. Guatemala continues to lead the region on transparency practices but saw a dip in its participation score. This report is available in Spanish (translations coming soon).
