Publish What You Fund has examined how development finance institutions are disclosing their 2X investments and found big gaps in the information available. The lack of standardised disaggregated information makes it almost impossible to get the granular insights that are needed to measure the value, impact, and progress of gender lens investing. In a new research paper we assess the current state of 2X disclosure and suggest how the 2X community can improve its transparency and accountability.
We are delighted to welcome three new trustees to the board of Publish What You Fund. Michael Jarvis, Karolina Olofsson and Jenna Slotin Bring a wealth of experiences and specialisms in governance and democracy, accountability and participation, Policy and research, data and programme design, aid effectiveness and transparency.
