UAE focus on aid transparency
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been trained in aid transparency and financial accountability in order to work towards being a more effective aid donor. The workshops were held in collaboration with the Charity Commission for England and Wales, Islamic Relief UK and the UAE Office for the Coordination of Foreign Aid (OCFA).
Awareness of the requirements and benefits of publishing comprehensive, timely and comparable aid information will increase the effectiveness of the UAE US$107 million aid budget (2008) and has been praised by AidInfo as a mark of ‘growing global interest in aid transparency’.
