The Aid Transparency Index (ATI) is the only independent measure of
transparency among the world's leading aid organizations. Donors promised
to fully implement a common standard for publishing aid information - the
International Aid Transparency Initiative - by December 2015. This year's
ATI therefore comes at a critical time in the push for open aid data. The
ATI findings highlight which donors are on- or off-track as we approach the
agreed deadline. With just over a year to go, the clock is ticking.

This global launch event will present the latest ATI ranking and include a
keynote address by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigerian Minister of Finance. There
will also be a panel discussion with global representatives from the
transparency and development sector. After the formal agenda, we will host
an interactive session to explore innovative data portals that illustrate
the power of open information. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., a light
breakfast will be available.
