MESSAGE FROM KARIN
Last week Civil Society members of the International Aid Transparency
Initiative (IATI) Steering Committee wrote to participating
donors congratulating them on the important first step they have taken in
signing an international standard. See the letters here.
I also had the pleasure of speaking at the Chartered Institute for Public
Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) conference on trust and accountability in
public financial management, and at PricewaterhouseCoopers on the
fundamental need for aid transparency.
We are now eagerly anticipating the 31st March, when IATI signatories'
schedules for implementing the new international standard are due.
A big win for transparency came as the General Court of the
EU ruled on Tuesday that the EU Council must make countries’ positions on
the access to documents reform available to citizens.
Access Info, the campaign behind the Court ruling, published “The
Secret State of EU Transparency Reforms” which demonstrates the need for
greater transparency from the EU Council to allow for meaningful public
participation in the formation of legislation.
The U.S. Government Accountability Office released
a report demonstrating the necessity of interagency coordination, up to
date information and federal transparency if taxpayers’ money is to be best
spent to best effect.
The UK’s Department for International Development have released their
2011 Multilateral Aid Review, which includes an assessment of the
transparency and accountability of multilateral aid agencies.
