Proving that more transparent aid really does lead to more effective aid is no mean feat, but that’s what we’ve been working to do. Our policy work underpins our efforts to make the case for greater aid transparency, working with others who share this goal.
Our research helps us better understand the needs and constraints of different users of aid information, including:
- partner country governments and donor agencies; parliamentarians and civil society organisations;
- citizen organisations and advocacy organisations;
- researchers and academics;
- aid recipients on the ground and taxpayers in donor countries.
We’ve looked at what information these groups:
- already have access to;
- what information they need;
- how they would use it;
- how it could impact their work.
We work closely with CSOs, academics and other research organisations. Together, we want to establish an evidence base on the potential benefits of greater aid transparency. Our findings are published as reports, case studies and recommendations.
