_MESSAGE FROM KARIN_
I am proud to share with you Publish What You Fund’s Aid Transparency
Assessment that we have been working on over the last year. This is the
first global assessment of the transparency of 30 major donors across seven
indicators from eight data sources. The indicators cover donors' commitment
to aid transparency, transparency to recipient governments, and transparency
to civil society.
The assessment is available on the new Publish What You Fund website.
Explore the data yourself and see how donors perform.
Our first major finding highlights the necessity of donors building an
international standard. The lack of comparable data meant we could not do
the type of bottom up assessment we wished. However, the indicators
developed from the limited data available provide an interesting comparison
of current levels of donor transparency. We are planning to carry on with
this work on an annual basis.
We hope there will be with more comprehensive, comparable and timely data to
draw on in the future and would very much appreciate feedback, suggestions
and thoughts on how to take this work forward.
The Assessment will be presented at the OECD DAC workshop on transparent
development co-operation today, at the International Anti-Corruption
Conference in Bangkok in November and at workshops in Washington in
And the activity doesn't end there. Yesterday was World Development
Information Day, drawing attention to the necessity of information in
tackling development issues, and tomorrow will see the launch of
Transparency International's 15th Corruption Perception Index.
Earlier in the month, the Center for Global Development released its
important “Quality of Official Development Assistance Assessment”
(QuODA) which provides a useful interactive tool for tracking and comparing
the quality of donor programs, and the International Budget Partnership
launched its Open Budget Survey 2010, measuring budget transparency and
accountability around the world.
Other developments include the launch of the World Bank’s Apps for
Development Challenge, the publication of a new paper on aid
effectiveness in Uganda from Moon and Williamson at the ODI, and Publish
What You Fund partners AidInfo launching their new website.
