Data is integral to our work and to yours. We want you to have better and easier access to it.
Aid information presented in its rawest form, as open data, has a myriad of different uses. It allows a variety of intermediaries to take this information and make it accessible to the many different stakeholders that need it: by undertaking analysis to observe trends; mash up aid flow information with other data sets such as poverty rates or public investment; create enlightening visualisations; geocode aid activities to make it more meaningful to local communities. Access to data provides the foundations for greater accountability and decision-making and ultimately more effective use of the limited resources available.
Ultimately, we are working to ensure that data is published:
- more quickly;
- in a common, open format, so that it is readily accessible, comparable and easy to find;
- in more detail, increasing its relevance to users.
Our Aid Information Portal brings together resources and information about where you can find aid data from a variety of sources such as existing aggregated aid databases, donors & NGO websites and country Aid Information Management Systems (AIMS).
If you’ve got an interest in any of the above, this dashboard brings together our most relevant content.
