Sweden funds Unesco transparency site upgrade

Sweden is spending 1.5 million kronor ($175,000) on improving Unesco’s platform for publishing data on its programmes and grants.

The so-called Transparency Portal is intended to make information on Unesco activities more publicly accessible. The website was launched in 2015 as part of a wider move by the agency to improve accountability and transparency, following criticism of its operations.

“The enhanced Transparency Portal will be an important tool to help monitor and follow up the adequacy, predictability, flexibility, transparency and alignment of both regular programme and extra-budgetary resources,” Unesco said in a statement.
