Announcement

In June of 2016, The World Bank and AidData published From Pork to Performance, a study on the political economy of open data for service delivery in the Philippines.

From Pork to Performance illuminates the politics of how public resources are spent and the difficulty of the “last mile” of service delivery. This study examines the extent to which technology and transparency can disrupt this low accountability status quo through turning information into collective action to improve government performance by strengthening the accountability relationships between politicians, service providers and citizens.

Funding: This study was commissioned by the World Bank Group with the support of the Australian Government through the Australian-World Bank Philippines Development Trust Fund and produced in partnership with AidData, a research lab at William & Mary.
