This blog discusses the DFI Transparency Tool’s fourth component – financial information – and argues that improved disclosure of both mobilisation and concessionality is critical to scaling up financial flows in support of the Sustainable Development Goals and achieving development impact.
Looking at the second component of our DFI Transparency Tool, this blog argues that the “development scores” produced by new DFI impact management systems are of limited value. DFIs should instead focus on disclosing the granular impact data that informs these scores.
This blog introduces the first of the components of our DFI Transparency Tool, core information. It expands on the theme of uneven progress in improving transparency, and reflects on why and how we initially focused our research on the basic information that provides the foundations for true transparency.
In this blog, Paul James discusses our experience of researching DFI transparency for the last two years, looking both at how the industry has changed for the better in recent years and the amount of work that still needs to be done.
