While funding for international development projects in Bangladesh, Kenya, and Nigeria is increasing, funding for projects targeting women’s economic empowerment has remained the same since 2015. This is one of the key findings of new research, which outlines the state of funding for women’s economic empowerment in Bangladesh, Kenya, and Nigeria.
The majority of the agencies in the 2022 Aid Transparency Index now publish good quality aid data. 31 organisations, the highest number to date, now score “very good” or “good”. But this 10th anniversary report contains a stark warning about the deterioration in quality of data between editions of the Aid Transparency Index.
The FCDO dropped 13.5 points in the 2022 Aid Transparency Index compared with DFID’s score in 2020. This means no UK agencies are in the “very good” category – the first time this has happened since the categories were introduced in 2013.
Our regular newsletter featuring details of the launch of the 2022 Aid transparency Index, why we’re sounding the alarm on the future of the global aid data sets, and how aid data is being used to track funding for nutrition and women’s economic empowerment.
