Our regular monthly round up of news – featuring the results of the 2020 Aid Transparency Index and the accompanying blog series, filmed interviews and launch event. We also catch up on the launch of the humanitarian data transparency series and four research briefs.
The 2020 Aid Transparency Index reveals an improvement in overall transparency among the world’s major aid agencies, but a worrying lack of transparency on the impact of aid projects. Produced by Publish What You Fund, the Index is the only independent measure of aid transparency among the world’s major aid donors. As billions of aid dollars are re-directed to the COVID-19 emergency, it provides a timely reminder of the importance of aid transparency and what can be achieved when it is valued and institutionalised.
