EU AidWatch Report urges remaining EU donors to join IATI
The 2010 EU AidWatch Report was launched this morning in Brussels. Having ‘tracked the EU’s progress towards achieving its aid quantity and quality commitments’, the report states that most donors are yet to adequately address the important issues of aid transparency, conditionality and accountability.
The Position Paper of the Concord AidWatch network advises that:
‘The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) is working to promote critical improvements to the transparency of information around aid. This effort is vital to making EU and other donors more accountable, and assist in delivering on a range of Paris Declaration and Accra commitments, including: predictability, division of labour, and relation to country systems. However, only 9 EU member states have to date formally committed to supporting IATI.
