Cameroon: increasing government transparency

Author: SID Lab
Published Date: 29 November 2012

Corruption and the mismanagement of public resources are often cited as key issues facing developing countries. Those working at Cameroon's first social innovation lab, The SID Lab (Social Innovation for Development), have devised an online tool to increase budget transparency and help citizens keep track of public expenditure. Expenditure is broken down into the operating budget and public investment, and displayed in easy-to-read graph and chart forms. Noteable aspects include high recurring military spending relative to social security spending, though investment in the latter is higher.
