The African Development Bank has today published data to the International Aid Transparency Initiative which details both its public and private sector activities and provides precise geocoded information, becoming the first multilateral development bank to provide this level of detail in IATI data.
The decision to publish data to the IATI standard reflects the Bank’s commitment to transparency and accountability in the use of its resources and furthers the implementation of its new Disclosure and Access to Information Policy, which aims to broaden public access to information on the Bank’s activities.
The Bank’s transparency agenda aims to empower people on the ground with the information they need to follow the money, drive results and to scrutinize and make better decision in their dealings with the AfDB. Transparent information on aid is fundamental for democratic ownership and accountability. It enables citizens and their representatives to monitor public spending and hold their governments and partners to account.
