Data & Evidence

Our work is driven by evidence. We are committed to better understanding how public resources can be used to reduce inequality, benefit poor people, and provide public services effectively and equitably.

We investigate how civil society can influence positive reforms and hold governments to account for how they are raising and spending public money. We also investigate the relationships between open budgets and better public finance management.

Along with measuring budget transparency, participation, and oversight, we produce case studies that document our work and the work civil society partners all around the world. These are intended to help us refine our work, and contribute to the growing body of evidence on how open budgets can transform lives.
