Comparison Chart

This comparison chart shows donor progress in the Aid Transparency Index from 2013 – 2016.

Since 2013, the number of organisations included in the ‘very good’ category has significantly increased. These organisations are leading the transparency agenda by providing good quality data on their aid and development activities. Yet, there is still room for improvement as most of the organisations are concentrated around the ‘fair’ category.

Find the organisation you are interested in and follow its progress over the years. Please note that not all donors have been assessed in every Index.
