_MESSAGE FROM KARIN_
In 2010 a standard was built to make sure more aid information is actually
better information. In 2011 the information needs to start flowing.
This year begins with finalising the international aid transparency standard
in February, and culminates in the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in
December, 3 years after donors committed to making their aid more
transparent in Accra.
Between now and December we need to use key events such as the G8, G20,
OECD, IMF and World Bank meetings as milestones on the path to donors
publishing what they fund.
As the agenda moves to implementation there should be a place to discuss aid
transparency’s challenges and practical implications; that is why Publish
What You Fund is launching the Aid Transparency Blog with Devex next
week. Please do visit and join the conversation.

Interaction has relaunched “HaitiAidMap”, which brings transparency to
relief and recovery work in Haiti, helping to identify the areas of greatest
need in order to better allocate resources.
Eurodad calls for greater financial transparency to combat illicit
capital flight from developing countries. Progress is being made as the
European Commission commits to publish a September Communication on the
Richard Manning, chair of IDS, former chair of the OECD DAC, and peer
reviewer of our Aid Transparency Assessment, urges donors to “step up
action on the transparency of their own aid delivery” in a contribution to
the German Marshall Fund blog.
An article by James Elrick on the FreeBalance blog stresses “The
Importance of Aid Transparency”.
