FILTER BY COUNTRY & ORGANISATION -or- ISSUE AREA:
COLOMBIA

The majority of Colombia’s commitments were considered ‘not new’, although half were marked as ambitious. Colombia was the only government to pledge to participate in the Global Beneficial Ownership Register (now known as OpenOwnership), but this has not yet joined. An equally new and ambitious pledge to design transparency standards for fiscal information related to post-conflict expenditure is underway – although it is noted that those transparency standards are not advanced.

All of Colombia’s pledges to public procurement, anti-money laundering and asset recovery are ‘underway’ or ‘ongoing’.
