Abstract: Transparency and accountability initiatives (T&AIs) aim to increase development effectiveness, improve the quality of governance and empower poor citizens. Measuring the impact of these initiatives, however, is not straightforward. More robust evidence of the impact of transparency and accountability initiatives is needed to ensure its survival, especially in the current climate of shrinking aid spending. The state of evidence could be improved by developing impact assessment approaches pioneered in other fields that are sensitive to complexity.
