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.
Last year we initiated a methodology review process for our Aid Transparency Index, with the aim of updating the assessment approach in order to ensure we adapt to new developments and continue to raise the bar for aid transparency. Following a period of research, online surveys and consultation meetings, we have developed a proposal for changes to the approach. We would appreciate any comment on our consultation paper.
We are currently reviewing the Index assessment and scoring approach. Our aim is to update the research process to adapt to new developments and ensure the Index continues to reflect the areas of aid transparency that are most important for those using the data, particularly stakeholders in the global south. We are keen to hear the views of people using aid data to inform our review, and strengthen how we measure transparency.
Elma Jenkins explains how and why we’re undertaking a review of the Aid Transparency Index methodology and how you can get involved.
In our final 2020 Aid Transparency Index launch blog, Dr Kate Weaver of the University of Texas reflects on the influence of the Index and the limitations of the methodology. She calls for greater support to enable the Index to take the next steps in delivering the real promise of aid transparency – better, more accountable aid for all.
The recently launched 2020 Aid Transparency Index illustrates the balance needed between competition and co-operation for driving transparency. As a tool the Index is quite simple, we encourage the world’s major aid organisations to be more transparent by scoring and ranking their published aid data. In this blog, Elma Jenkins digs into how the Index works and how it drives transparency.
