Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP): Catalyzing inclusive and transformative Financing for Development

This position paper outlines the TAP Network’s top-line advocacy priorities around the Financing for Development process. It has been developed through the inputs of dozens of TAP Network organizations, and has been endorsed by 28 TAP Network organizations working around the FfD process.

The paper stresses that Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP) must be at the heart of the Financing for Development (FfD) outcome document. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the FfD process have both set out ambitious agendas – those in which transparent and accountable institutions and citizen participation in governance serve as linchpins for sustainable development progress at all levels.

As cross-cutting elements, the TAP Principles are critical for ensuring effective and accountable governance that will catalyze a transformative financing and Post-2015 sustainable development agenda, at all levels. This brief highlights why the TAP Principles of transparency, accountability and citizen participation are critical to maximizing effective financing and helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring that no one is left behind.
