Georgian Ministry of Finance publish aid information
The Ministry of Finance of Georgia have published a breakdown of international aid spending in Georgia. The publication of the mapping of donors by the Ministry comes as a welcome improvement in the aid transparency and accountability of donors in Georgia. The problem demonstrates that it is recipient governments rather than the donors who have had to step-up and solve the problem. This demonstrates the need for donors to proactively disclose information themselves, mapping it to the Georgian governments spending and tracking how the funds are actually spent.
The publically available information includes a list of grants and loans amounts from donors and descriptions of how this assistance will be used in Georgia. For more information please see Transparency International’s press release and the Ministry’s Donor Mapping found on the website.
