Washington, USA

Impact Story

WASHINGTON, USA (World Bank): On 21 April 2012 the World Bank hosted a high level event with visionary leaders to showcase the work of the New Deal, and publicise how it can promote better ways of working on conflict and fragility.

Somalia

Impact Story

Somalia’s roadmap to exit the transitional government’s mandate, which expires in August 2012, is tied closely to the PSGs. The New Deal framework will then be adopted for their new strategic plan moving forwards.

Liberia

Kabul, Afghanistan

Impact Story

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN: The Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF) achieved and developed a standardised reporting system, where all information was published online.

Freetown, Sierra Leone

Impact Story

FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE: In January 2012, the Government of Sierra Leone launched an online repository of all mining activity in the country.

This mineral sector transparency initiative is a good demonstration of Sierra Leone's commitment to the transparency principles and of the fifth PSG (Revenue and Services) of the New Deal.
