The World Bank disclosure policy review

This page in:

Editor's Note: Larisa Smirnova is a consultant at the World Bank and is currently working with the Transparency Indicator team.

Earlier this week I attended the Workshop on Proposed Revisions to the World Bank’s Disclosure Policy. The World Bank revises its disclosure policy every two years. The concept of the current comprehensive review is outlined in the paper Toward Greater Transparency: Rethinking the World Bank's Disclosure Policy. Most importantly, the paper suggests a shift from only disclosing information on the "positive list" to disclosing any information in the Bank’s possession unless it is on the "list of exceptions".

The paper is available at the World Bank’s external website in seven languages and is open to comments by everyone. Have your voice heard!
