Topic: Open budgets as the driving force of effective COVID-19 response and recovery: What can countries in Eastern and Southern Africa do better?
Description: Governments around the world are mobilizing vast public resources to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic shocks. While speed is critical to save lives and limit economic hardships, the urgency means the risk of mismanagement, waste, and corruption is considerable. UNICEF’s Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) regional office and the International Budget Partnership (IBP) present this webinar on open budgets during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The objectives of this webinar is to: (i) share how the results and recommendations of the latest OBS are particularly relevant as countries respond to and recover from the crisis; (ii) discuss country experiences on opening budgets; and (iii) explore opportunities for continued reforms on open budgets in ESA.
Time : Sep 23, 2020 08:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
