About

The Right to Information Evaluation methodology is a companion project to the CLD’s RTI Rating. Where the RTI Rating focuses on the strength of legal frameworks implementing RTI, access to information laws, RTI Evaluation explores the effects of access to information laws. Both projects are implementations developed in response to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicator 16.10.2, a UN framework for measuring state adoption and public access to information guarantees.

Presented and warmly received at the 2019 Paris Peace Forum, the RTI Evaluation methodology was developed in part through a two-year pilot project in the Pakistani provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab co-funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit’s Support to Local Governance Programme and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
