USAID Transparency and Open Government through Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding
Summary A policy brief addressed to USAID calling for more collaboration in the foreign aid process through crowdvoting and crowdfunding.
Description When President Obama took office in 2008 he implemented the Transparency and Open Government Initiative to incorporate transparency, participation, and collaboration between the American people and their government. The US Agency for International Development (USAID) created the Foreign Assistance Dashboard in response to that directive, but the scope and impact of this new platform falls short of the expectations laid out in the President’s proposal. Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding are two recent innovations that the USAID should consider adopting, not only to catalyze participation and collaboration, but also to create greater efficiencies throughout the agency.
