Follow The Money Nigeria: the role of tech

Connected Development, through its initiative Follow The Money (FTM), tracks government spending in rural communities. Through the platform, they’ve been able to broaden impact, decentralise operations, and mobilise citizens to follow the money themselves.

This research investigates how technologies have inspired citizens to perform virtual and real time public oversight and have facilitated public spending data access and exchange.
