Sweden and Sida ranks high in aid transparency index
The organisation Publish What You Fund recently revealed the Aid Transparency Index for 2014, ranking aid donors on level of transparency. Sweden is ranked 6th out of 68 aid donors, 3rd among bilateral donors and in the top performing group in the 2014 Aid Transparency Index.
The Aid Transparency Index looks at the quantity and quality of the donors’ IATI data. IATI (which stands for International Aid Transparency Initiative) is an international data standard for publishing information about aid activities.
The index, along with an accompanying report, is presented once a year by the aid transparency advocate organisation Publish What You Fund. You can access the full report here. This year the report was launched in Washington DC and Sida was invited to present the new version of Openaid.se which visualizes Sweden’s IATI data.
Openaid.se shows all of Sweden’s aid from 1998 to 2014 and is based on the international IATI data standard.
