To share information about government or NGO projects and programmes.
Transparency Boards are used to share information about projects - like the programme objectives, activities, who the funder is, and how much money will be spent on what. These boards are displayed in a public place and updated regularly as a way of improving accountability to communities. It’s important to consider issues such as language and literacy when deciding to use a transparency board and to be open to alternative ways of sharing information.
The use of transparency notice boards has helped enhance information flow about budget allocation to public institutions and projects and also on the devolution of public funds. This has raised citizen’s awareness about the existence of these public resources and empowered them to seek and demand their effective and efficient use and to minimise local corruption and misappropriations.
