Neue Initiative fördert Transparenz in Afrika
ATTI will be used as a way of complimenting the Omidyar Network’s investments to well-established government transparency organisations in Sub-Saharan Africa, by delivering single-instance payments to smaller organisations that they feel operate in an innovative way. All this is good news then; here we have investment in technologies driven by the need for greater transparency in African governments. We think this is a great idea and something that is clearly needed. The combination of technology and citizen empowerment has the potential to greatly improve transparency in government. This expectation also applies to aid, which makes it an especially exciting development for us. We’ll be watching this new initiative with great interest, and relish the opportunity for southern citizens and CSOs to get involved.
