Many donors have adopted targets to direct more funding to local organisations. But past efforts to track funding flows have often struggled to agree on a definition of local.

Using USAID as an example, we’ve been working to understand, interpret and present existing data in a way that enables stakeholders to undertake analysis and track funding based on their own definitions of local.
Our monthly newsletter, featuring our latest blog on the transparency of development finance institutions and why financial intermediaries are so significant. Plus news on the launch of the 2022 Aid Transparency Index.
This blog discusses the DFI Transparency Tool’s fifth component – financial intermediaries. Farzana Ahmed outlines why financial intermediaries are a significant aspect of DFI investments. She considers the importance of transparency of financial intermediary investments in order to understand their impact and allow community accountability efforts.
Our regular newsletter, featuring a chance to catch up on our recent discussion on who pays for care, and a celebration of the contribution of our independent reviewers to the Aid Transparency Index.
As we await the final results of the 2022 Aid Transparency Index, Elma Jenkins has been speaking to some of our most crucial but least known researchers, the independent reviewers. The 2022 Index process has so far involved three months reviewing several thousand documents, extraordinary amounts of International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) data, 50 publishers and 36 independent reviewers. The reviewer role is crucial in ensuring we make a full and fair assessment of publishers’ data.
