One 2009 DATA Report Highlights Aid Transparency
 
(LONDON) – ONE is promoting aid transparency in its 2009 DATA Report. The Report emphasises the work of the International Aid Transparency Initiative and Publish What You Fund as “critical to the policy reform” needed to deliver effective aid and development spending.
 
The Report stresses that: “Without accurate, comparable and timely reports about donor financing (including objectives, timeframe and amounts), both recipient and donor countries’ efforts to plan strategically for development and efficiently allocate resources are undermined.”
 
Publish What You Fund’s Director, Karin Christiansen, praised ONE’s 2009 DATA Report saying: “The DATA Report demonstrates the growing consensus that aid transparency is not only a freedom of information obligation but also a powerful tool for both donors and recipients in improving the planning and use of aid.”
