GIZ is a state-owned company and implements development cooperation activities on behalf of BMZ and other funders. In the 2018 Index, BMZ-GIZ again ranked in the ‘good’ performance category. The agency has also worked to improve the frequency of its IATI publication and now publishes data on at least a monthly basis.
Publish What You Fund recognises the commitment to transparency by BMZ – GIZ and now calls on them to:
- Ensure that its organisation planning information on IATI is kept up-to-date and contains the right information.
- Start publishing information on sub-national locations to provide data on where it is implementing development work.
- Prioritise the publication of performance related information that allows everyone to monitor progress and whether objectives were met.
- Take responsibility to promote the use of the data they publish: internally, to promote coordination and effectiveness; and externally, to explore online and in-person feedback loops, including at country-level.
