Transparency and Accountability

Conditions for Better Government

Mission

Contribute to the improvement of public management and service delivery to citizens, through the strengthening of governments' transparency and accountability.

Several studies show how information assymetries, lack of transparency and accountability affect the quality of public services and have a negative impact on development, especially of the poorest communities. For the IDB, the support provided to countries for the building of institutions that operate with transparency and accountability is part of its mandate ( GA-232-38 and GN-2117-2 ) and the sectoral priorities of growth and social welfare ( AB-2764 ).

Within the strategic framework that defines the Action Plan to Support Countries' Efforts to Combat Corruption and Foster Transparency (PAACT, GN-2540 ), and upon the request of borrowing member countries, the IDB provides support at the institutional and sectoral level and at the national and subnational levels of government.

In this way, the IDB contributes to the improvement of public policies and national plans for preventing and combating corruption and strengthening the institutional capacity of governments by improving access to information, promoting targeted transparency in strategic sectors, modernizing agencies of supreme, external and internal control and enhancing the oversight role of legislative bodies.
