    SID-Washington’s Education for Development Workgroup welcomes you for a special discussion on the Right to Information Act in India, presented by Kohl S. Gill, Senior Analyst and AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow, US Department of Energy.

    The Indian Right to Information Act (RTI) has far-reaching implications for transparency in all sectors of international development work. With broad coverage of national and local Indian governance structures and strict, enforceable time limits, the RTI has earned its reputation as one the strongest and most thorough transparency laws in the world.

    Kohl S. Gill, Senior Analyst and AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow, US Department of Energy, will review some important facets of this legislation, areas where it can be applied to further development work, and paths forward in India and other countries. Particular attention will be paid to uses of the RTI relevant to international development organizations and their implementing partners to address food security, income generation, health care, the environment, and human rights. Participants are welcome to contact Dr. Gill, ahead of time with any particular concerns they would like to see addressed.
