Bio: Government Spending Watch collects information on spending by low and lower-middle income countries to support the efforts of active citizens across the world to hold their leaders accountable for their commitments and get them to spend more money to fight poverty, through agriculture, education, environment, gender, health, social protection, and water and sanitation.
