Join our webinar on 14th April to learn how the Guatemalan government and international donors are funding gender equality in Guatemala, and where key stakeholders can work together to improve the transparency of this funding.
Our regular news roundup, featuring the latest reports and webinars from our gender financing project – focused on gender equality funding in Kenya, Guatemala and Nepal. Also a reminder about our consultation on proposed changes to the Aid Transparency Index methodology.
A lack of clear and consistent information on the funding and effectiveness of gender equality work makes it difficult to track progress on gender equality commitments in Guatemala, Kenya and Nepal. the Gender Financing Project has just published research mapping national and international funding flows in the three countries – and we found it remains difficult to paint a comprehensive picture of funding for gender equality, and to know if donors’ gender financing is making a difference.
Our regular roundup of news on aid and development transparency – featuring research and interviews on DFIs, transparency, ESG and community accountability. Plus an update on our Aid Transparency Index method review and an opportunity for women’s economic empowerment consultants.
Last year we initiated a methodology review process for our Aid Transparency Index, with the aim of updating the assessment approach in order to ensure we adapt to new developments and continue to raise the bar for aid transparency. Following a period of research, online surveys and consultation meetings, we have developed a proposal for changes to the approach. We would appreciate any comment on our consultation paper.
The transparency practices of development finance institutions (DFIs) rarely match up to their policies on the disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and accountability, according to new research from our DFI Transparency Initiative. The research examined the transparency of 20 bilateral and multilateral DFIs.
