OECD Budget Transparency Toolkit
October 2017

Budget transparency brings many benefits for citizens and for society. Openness, trust and public accountability are among these benefits. Increasingly, fostering budget transparency is also seen as vital to promoting integrity in public governance and strengthening anti-corruption policies.

However, putting budget transparency into practice can sometimes appear as a daunting task: Where should a country begin in implementing a reform agenda? Where should citizens and civil society organisations focus their efforts, to make a meaningful impact in realising these potential benefits?

The Toolkit introduces practitioners to the various standards and guidelines that are available, help them understand how these materials complement each other and allow users to go beyond the level of principles and theory, to action and impact.
