Identifying the specific groups of women that funding has supported greatly helps us to identify gaps in funding. In this blog, we examine what the data tells us about the groups of women targeted by international funders in Bangladesh, Kenya and Nigeria.
Our newsletter features details of our newly released research tracking funding for women’s economic empowerment, our innovative approach to tracking climate finance, some reflections on the launch of the 2022 Aid Transparency Index, a chance to catch up on an event examining financing for unpaid care work, and details of our methodology for merging global aid data sets.
On 2 August, we launched our research on donor and government financing to address gender gaps in women’s economic empowerment, including unpaid care work and access to financial services, at a webinar hosted by the Center for Global Development. A panel of donor and civil society representatives reflected on these findings and discussed what future investments should look like.
Our women’s economic empowerment team wanted to include as many international funding flows as possible when analysing development assistance data. In this blog, Benjamin Honey explores the pros and cons of merging the two main data sources and describes the methodology we employed.
Publish What You Fund has been looking into international climate finance and how this can be tracked at the national level. Alex Tilley presents research using aid transparency data to see how finance provided so far measures up against climate change adaptation needs identified by Kenya. This is a preview of a larger research project we are currently fundraising for.
Following the launch of the 2022 Aid Transparency Index, Sally Paxton and George Ingram reflect on the performance of the top US agencies, the progress that has been made on transparency and the importance of using data to improve future development outcomes.
