IDB to Open Access to Documents

The Inter-American Development Bank is opening to the public its volumes of proceedings, agenda, minutes, and even audit reports starting January 2011.

The development follows the approval of the bank’s new Access to Information Policy on May 12.

Country strategies, loan proposals and technical cooperations will also be made publicly available so long as the countries involved agree to their publication. The policy is believed to be one of the most extensive compared to other multilateral financial institutions.
