Aid Transparency Initiative

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) aims to make information about aid spending easier to find, use and compare. 

Those involved in aid programmes will be able to better track what aid is being used for and what it is achieving. This stretches from taxpayers in donor countries, to those in developing countries who benefit from aid. Improving transparency also helps governments in developing countries manage aid more effectively. 

This means that each dollar will go as far as possible towards fighting poverty. IATI was launched in September 2008 in Accra, Ghana. It is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative that has brought together: donor countries developing country governments non-governmental organisations experts in aid information These participants agree on a common, open, international standard for publishing more, and better, information about aid.
