Results of the 2018 Aid Transparency Index
Visit the Index website for detailed analysis and information.
The Aid Transparency Index is the only independent measure of aid transparency among the world’s major development agencies. It is the flagship publication of Publish What You Fund.
The Index tracks and measures donors’ progress towards transparency. This public comparative ranking of donor agencies, based on a robust methodology, enables us to identify changes needed and galvanise major donors to progressively increase and improve the aid and development information they make available.
Since 2011 the Index has raised the profile of aid transparency and enabled us to effectively influence some of the largest aid donors in the world to ‘publish more and publish better’.
We have also released a range of online transparency tools, to assist donors with the publication of aid and development information ahead of the Index process.
Work is now underway on the next Aid Transparency Index, to be launched in June 2020. Data collection will begin on 2nd December 2019 and end on 30th March 2020. Details of the 47 donors to be included in the Index can be found here.
“We need to know the resources at our disposal as well as a sense of what worked or not. We need reliable and detailed information.”- Alimatou Zongo, Ministry of Economy and Finance, Burkina Faso, 2018
