Better humanitarian aid information needed to improve accountability

Development Initiatives today launched the Global Humanitarian Assistance (GHA) report, providing an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of global humanitarian financing.

UntitledHumanitarian crises are messy and complicated – and so is the reporting. Produced annually since 2000, the GHA report answers some basic questions around humanitarian funding: Where does the money come from? Where does it go? How does it get there? 

The report also highlights the need for better quality aid data in fragile and conflict-affected countries, stating:

“It remains impossible to trace transactions all the way through the system to know how much these NGOs – or any other implementing partners – actually received indirectly via international agencies. If all actors reported their financial flows in a standardised format, such as to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard, project-level data could be geocoded and resources could be traced all the way from the donor to the recipient.”

Visit the GHA website to find all of the data behind this report, as well as country profiles, crisis briefings and analysis on specific themes.
