About the note: Recent years have seen an push for increased government transparency. At the same time, ICTs have spread rapidly and now connect some of the most remote locations with the rest of the world. The combination of these two trends creates significant opportunities for project teams and government counterparts to improve transparency and governance in their projects. The purpose of this note is to familiarize readers with the basic aspects of access to information (AI) and ICT and to provide hands-on suggestions and examples on how to implement eTransparency measures in projects and beyond.
