INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON TRANSPARENCY AND PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY

INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON TRANSPARENCY AND PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY

….  ACCRA-GHANA, 2017

OVERVIEW

The linkage between transparency, public accountability and economic development is quite crucial. It is indeed a paradox that most African nations are described in many international reports as rich in human capital  and natural resources, but classed among the world’s 20 poorest countries, thus; confirming that there is a wide gap between revenue generation, appropriation, utilisation, and the effect on development. Public accountability and transparency of the government owned sectors are vital contribution to the democratic quality of the state and key prerequisite to stability and security. The new implications further created by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and contemporary global trends particularly to the developing nations of Africa, therefore suggest a constant multilateral engagement and commitment of key stakeholders to realize change on a sustainable scale.
