Ask Your Government Initiative

The Ask Your Government Initiative aims to reveal the extent to which governments are actually fulfilling their commitments in the areas critical to development, such as, maternal health, aid effectiveness, and environmental protection.  As part of the initiative, five partners of the International Budget Project (IBP) in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda, and Zambia recorded audio diaries of their efforts to request and obtain budget information from their governments on these issues.  Based on the audio diaries, the IBP produced a five-part series of radio programs.  Meet the researchers in these countries as they tell their stories, find out if their governments answered their questions, and talk about what you think about access to public budget information practices in your country. Idasa’s Thembinkosi Dlamini participated in the Ask Your Government Initiative. Listen to them here.
