WINDHOEK, 09 FEB (NAMPA) – The Open Budget Survey (OBS) for 2017 was launched in Windhoek on Thursday by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).
The survey is the world’s only independent, comparative assessment of the three pillars of public budget accountability - transparency, oversight and public participation.
It uses 109 indicators to measure budget transparency and each country receives a composite score out of 100 that determines its ranking on the Open Budget Index.
