Speeches Shim

From September 22 to 30, 2014, a team of three consultants and one staff member from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Policy, Planning and Learning Bureau (PPL), Office of Donor Engagement visited Bangladesh to conduct the third of three Aid Transparency Country Pilot studies. During this time, the team conducted 27 interviews with representatives of the government of Bangladesh (GOB), civil society organizations (CSOs), members of parliament, media organizations, the private sector, and program staff at the USAID/Bangladesh Mission. Following the interviews, all interviewees received an Excel spreadsheet with USG agencies’ data from the website and a survey on the user friendliness of the website. This provided interviewees with immediate access to detailed data on aid from USG agencies. The team participated in donor consultation meetings to discuss how donors share information with the GOB.
