Open data tools, innovative civic tech, and following the money
Our work in this thematic area aims to improve public resource use through open data approaches and partner-driven accountability initiatives – such as practical open data tools, COVID-19 fund trackers, and technology-driven citizen engagement – to generate evidence, enable learning, and address policy implementation gaps.
Public Resource Use Projects
The Transparency and Accountability Initiative and local partners in Colombia and Nigeria explore how best donors and country-level organizations can support efforts to use data to enhance accountability.
CTAP promotes accountability and transparency of COVID-19 intervention funds, advocating for open governance and ensuring that targeted governments make public all donations and funds received for the fight against COVID-19 across seven African Countries.
We reviewed the evolution of Nigeria’s Financial Transparency ecosystem to understand the changes that Luminate’s work has contributed to, and the remaining challenges and opportunities for increasing the impact of Luminate and their partners around financial transparency and accountability in Nigeria.
This project uses comparative case studies to focus on the factors that shape the implementation gap in relation to TPA issues in natural resource governance.
We are carrying out research and facilitating dialogue to identify challenges and opportunities to improve the use of data from mining certifications in the Andean region.
As an organization, we are rooted in supporting people as they test and learn from interventions and strategies. Turning that mirror onto
ourselves, here’s what we learned this year and how we will embed those lessons into our future work at Global Integrity.
Lessons from Across Africa: Stories of Better Health Sector Service Delivery through Advocacy that Elevates Local Voices (CTAP Guidance Note #2)

Transnational Collaboration for Better Health: Priorities & Advocacy Strategies in the African Context(CTAP Guidance Note #1)
Across Africa, leaders who design and implement policies have been working with international and regional organizations to help them address health sector challenges during COVID-19 response. As a result, many health sector decisions are shaped by discussions that take place in global and regional spaces, such as the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), and the African Union (AU). Common tools and agendas are one way to tackle complex problems brought by the pandemic, with a caveat for observed variance between different country contexts.
