Make Aid Transparent

A campaign to make aid transparent has been launched today by a civil society coalition, aiming to remind donors to keep their promise and make aid transparent by publishing details online, subsequently providing a bigger picture of aid.

Why is this needed?

  • Aid details should be accessible to the public because they have a right to know where their taxes are going.
  • Transparency would enable tax payers, people who give to charity and people in developing countries to hold their leaders accountable on how aid is spent.
  • There is a need to know where money is spent so that there is no cross-spending between governments and donors, which inevitably leads to some communities receiving too much aid while others receive nothing at all.

Aid is a scarce and precious resource that needs to be used effectively, so be one of the first to sign the petition to encourage transparency here.
