WINGS provides opportunities for members and partners to come together to consider issues of mutualinterest, share experiences participate in joint problem solving, gain new ideas and information, and build relationships and ongoing connections. WINGS network has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share and one of the topics that is consistently part of the discussion is transparency and accountability. That is aligned with a global trend across different sectors of society which emphasizes the need for and importance of transparency and accountability practices.
To support its members and build on their knowledge, WINGS carried out regional consultations on transparency and accountability for philanthropy. During 2012 and 2013, regional workshops were held in Cairo, Johannesburg and Bogota, bringing together over 100 WINGS members and partners. This online resource is a result of these meetings. It is a living document and WINGS will endeavor to continue to document experiences, tools, and best practices as members continue to advance their practice and understanding of transparency and accountability for philanthropy.
