This week the Gender Financing Project launched the report “Making gender financing more transparent.” This blog reflects on the data needs of gender equality stakeholders and offers three key takeaways for international donors and data platforms to meet them.
Our regular newsletter, featuring the launch of our making gender financing transparent research, an interview with Aubrey Hruby on increasing access to DFI finance, and a blog on how data disclosure can help multilateral development banks catalyse more private finance.
Our DFI Transparency Initiative has benefitted from the input of experts from development finance institutions (DFIs) themselves, from civil society organisations, and from private sector investors. Aubrey Hruby has been on the Project Advisory Board since the initiative’s inception and brings a wealth of experience of helping investors understand and enter African capital markets. Aubrey shared her perspective on how better transparency can drive more equitable access to development finance when she sat down with our CEO, Gary Forster.
Our regular news bulletin, featuring updates to the Index assessment method, new research on DFIs, transparency and financial information, a transparency timeline of the UK aid cuts, news of the launch of our gender financing research and a chance to catch up on a roundtable discussion on Russia and aid transparency.
We are pleased to announce that our review of the Aid Transparency Index assessment method has successfully concluded. We have a new Technical Paper which we will use for the 2022 Aid Transparency Index assessment.
There is inadequate disclosure of both aggregate and project level financial information across development finance institutions (DFIs), according to new research from our DFI Transparency Initiative. The research examined the transparency of 17 bilateral and multilateral DFIs and found that transparency gaps make it difficult to assess DFIs contribution to market building.
