Algeria Lags behind in Budget Transparency- Survey

Algeria was ranked among the countries making less information available about how they raise and spend public money, according to the results of the Open Budget Survey 2017.

With a score of 3/100, Algeria was in the rear with a double-digit decline in its performance compared to 2015.

“On the other hand, Open Budget Index scores fell by more than six points over this period in 28 countries, including 15 countries with double-digit declines (Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Niger, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Yemen, Zambia, and Zimbabwe),” it said.

This decline is in stark contrast to the average increase of roughly two points documented in each round of the survey between 2008 and 2015

This budget opacity seriously undermines the ability of citizens worldwide to hold their government accountable for using public funds efficiently and effectively, the survey said.

The Open Budget Survey assesses budget transparency based on the amount and timeliness of budget information governments are making publicly available. Each country is given a score between 0 and 100 that determines its ranking on the Open Budget Index.
