Dar es Salaam: REPOA (Formative process research on the local government reform in Tanzania.. Project Brief no. 7) 3 p.
Citizens' access and right to information on local government budgets and accounts is often considered a necessary condition for good governance. Without basic information on public revenues and expenditures people cannot hold their leaders and executive officers accountable. This is most acute when formal processes for accountability, such as audits and legislative reviews, are weak, as is common among local government authorities in Tanzania. How do local government authorities in Tanzania disseminate information to citizens on revenues and expenditures? And does the information reach the general public? We asked ordinary citizens these questions in a recently conducted survey.
