Take Action

Will you stand up and help us in our quest to make open budgets a rallying cry around the globe?

There are many ways you can contribute to making budget transparency and accountability the norm in all countries. To start, join us in urging your government to take the following steps.

  1. Establish meaningful, inclusive spaces to engage the public in budget processes.
  2. Curtail executive overreach and empower legislators and auditors’ oversight roles.
  3. Disclose more and better budget information.
  4. Sustain progress by institutionalizing accountability reforms.

Eight months ago, secondhand clothing vendor Bety Anoyi set up shop in what was then a mostly vacant lot in a rapidly developing space in Accra's East Legon neighourhood. With city construction bringing infrastructure, including newly paved roads to the area, many vendors chose to leave the city's packed market places and relocate to vacant, unclaimed spaces on roadsides that are in close proximity to bus stations and taxi ranks and, most importantly, customers. These transport nodes brought in a large number of pedestrians and commuters who would stop at Bety's merchandise. In time, more and more vendors like Bety set up shop in these spaces, increasing the number of clothing, food, and other stalls and kiosks. The informal vendors became a collective economic magnet of their own, bringing new commerce and productivity to these new areas.  FULLY RELEASED - CONSENT NUMBER: ACC022
