Publish What You Fund is the global campaign for aid transparency. As an independent nongovernmental organization, it advocates for more comprehensive, timely, accessible, and comparable data on aid flows to maximize the impact and effectiveness of aid resources. The campaign calls for the publication of all aid information in the common and open standard that was agreed upon under the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). By 2016, Publish What You Fund expects that donors representing 90 percent of official development aid flows will publish to the IATI standard. One of Publish What You Fund’s most effective tactics for improving the quality and usefulness of the information being published is to rank donors annually in an Aid Transparency Index.

for the global campaign for aid transparency
Publish What You Fund is the global campaign for aid transparency. Founded just two years ago, the campaign has emerged as an effective champion for increasing the availability and accessibility of aid information in a comprehensive, timely, and comparable manner. The campaign promotes implementation of the International Aid Transparency Initiative data standard through a combination of advocacy and communications outreach, while also monitoring donors’ compliance with the standard. The Foundation has been one of the organization’s core contributors over the past two years as it was incubated by a partner organization. With this grant to the newly independent organization, the campaign would concentrate on ensuring not only that foreign aid resources are transparent but also that data standards are interoperable so other development funding, including domestic resources, can be aligned and used most effectively.
