International tax evasion and avoidance has been a headline issue for more than 5 years. In a context of economic and social hardship, these behaviours understandably raised questions about the fairness and integrity of our tax systems. As a result, since the crisis, the OECD has been partnering with the G20, bringing together technical expertise and political leadership, to address those issues.
Senior members from the OECD's Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA) gave the latest update on: Overview of the BEPS Project and update on the 2014 deliverables.

The September 2014 update on the BEPS Action Plan, including the delivery of the first set of measures from the BEPS Project as well as enhanced engagement with developing countries.
The ability of citizens to demand accountability and more open government is fundamental to good governance. There is growing recognition of the need for new approaches to the ways in which donors support accountability, but no broad agreement on what changed practice looks like. This publication aims to provide more clarity on the emerging practice. Based on four country studies Mali, Mozambique, Peru and Uganda, a survey of donor innovations and cutting-edge analysis in this field, and the findings of a series of special high-level international dialogues on how to best support accountability support to parliaments, political parties, elections and the media. The publication takes the view that a wholesale shift in behaviour is required by parts of the development assistance community - moving outside conventional comfort zones and changing reflexes towards new approaches to risk taking, analysis and programming around systems of accountability and ‘do no harm’ efforts in political engagement.
This piece is aimed at a range of development practitioners, as well as a wider audience, including civil society actors and citizens around the world who interact with donors working on accountability support.
