Podcast: Tim Williamson on budget transparency in Uganda

“The donor community has made a bit of a mistake in the way it has approached budget transparency. It’s often solely through supporting civil society and not actually working with ministries of finance…the whole Uganda exercise is built on the idea of a partnership between government and civil society.”

The Ugandan Ministry of Finance recently launched a sophisticated new website – Uganda Budget Information – giving access to a raft of information onthe country's public finances. The site also allows users to feedback on service delivery in their local area; including the ability to comment and upload photos of schools and health centres throughout the country.

Tim Williamson, the Budget Strengthening Initiative’s Country Programme Manager for Uganda and South Sudan, worked closely with the ministry on the website and now exploring ways it can be further developed.

Ryan Flynn recently caught up with Tim Williamson at his home in Kampala to talk about the website and budget transparency in Uganda.
