The 2018 Index methodology review was released in June 2017.
Launched at Brookings in Washington DC, the 2013 report marked the start of Global Transparency Week. The 2013 Index used a revised methodology that reflected the changes in the aid transparency landscape and the focus on the quality of published.
Following the success of the 2010 Assessment, Publish What You Fund went on to develop the Pilot Aid Transparency Index – the first of its kind. Launched at events in Busan, London and Washington DC, the 2011 Index had an average donor score of 34%, showing that there was much work to be done.
The 2010 Assessment was the first attempt to do a detailed comparative stocktake of the current level of aid transparency. It highlighted the huge challenge in finding primary, comparable data on donor’s funding and activities.
