Today the World Bank have become the third aid donor, and the first multi-lateral agency to publish their aid information to the International Aid Transparency Initiative Registry. The World Bank come after the UK Department for International Development and the Hewlett Foundation in publishing their information to the newly agreed standard.
The IATI Registry is a central reference point for all data published by IATI signatories. Once this raw data is published, it is ready to be taken up by developers, analysts and infomediaries who can mash it up with other data, transform it into meaningful visualisations and expose useful trends and features.
We look forward to further aid donors publishing what they fund.
