We also will expand proactive disclosure of information, particularly that needed for participation in and accountability of public decision making. We will work towards ensuring that all information is published according to internationally recognized open standards. As the right of access to information is a transformative right and necessary for sustainable development, we will make particular efforts to ensure that comprehensible and meaningful information reaches all sectors of society, including the most marginalized populations, such as women.
We will improve public participation in the development and implementation of fiscal policy and budgeting, the dissemination of fiscal data in line with international good practices on budget transparency using open data formats, to popular dissemination of budget information through portals, citizens budgets or other means, and to fostering strong and independent supreme audit institutions. We will accelerate legislative reform on country-by-country reporting and tax avoidance, evasion and avoidance.
We will publish the contracts, licenses or leases (including associated geospatial information) which detail the agreements made between companies and the government on natural resources and land projects and the sales of commodities, and we will improve the transparency of the processes through which those agreements are made, in line with the open contracting principles. We will also publish information and assessments on the potential social and environmental impacts of these projects, and improving accountability and participation in their environmental management.
