The 2020 Aid Transparency Index is now available here.
Launched in June 2020, the Index highlights:
- Significant improvement in aid donors’ overall transparency compared to 2018, with over half of the 47 assessed donors now ranked as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
- Only a minority of donors are publishing project results with fewer still publishing project reviews and evaluations, limiting the ability of stakeholders to gauge the effectiveness and value of aid spending.
- The Index is driving behaviour towards greater transparency and openness among aid donors
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’.
We have also released a range of online transparency tools, to assist donors with the publication of aid and development information.
“Aid transparency based on sharing accurate, timely, comprehensive and comparable data is really important. It should be a non-negotiable commitment. There’s no scope or luxury for us to work in isolation. If we’d like to bring more connectivity, there’s no alternative but publishing the data in the humanitarian and development field."- Shahana Hayat, Christian Aid, Bangladesh 2020
