Tell the G8 that we need accountability!

I often hear the argument that we shouldn't give aid to countries that will just squander it. That we can't trust governments in many developing countries. But I say that instead of holding back aid we should do something about how governments act. Only then can we truly make sure that no-one dies from hunger.

The UK Government should support greater financial transparency from governments of developing countries, so that citizens in these countries can hold their governments to account for the money they spend.
