The Department for International Development’s promise to aid transparency
The Department for International Development (DFID) has reaffirmed its commitment to aid transparency in its 2009 White Paper.
The document reiterates DFID’s pledges to:
- lead on the International Aid Transparency Initiative;
- improve the transparency of aid flows through the availability of donors ‘publishing information of the projects they fund’;
- and revamp the DFID website with a searchable database.
Publish What You Fund welcomes DFID’s plans on aid transparency and hopes that it will also commit the resources needed to deliver on them fully.
