  • April 13, 2016

Publish What You Fund’s Aid Transparency Index (ATI) 2016 was launched today.

The 2016 ATI, presented at an event in Washington DC, measures development organisations’ commitment to aid transparency and the publication of aid information.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) tops the Index for the second time, having been ranked first in the last ATI, with the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) being placed second.

UNICEF enters the Index’s ‘very good’ category for the first time, jumping into third place. This category also includes the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (UK-DFID), the Global Fund, the World Bank-International Development Association (WB-IDA), the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), the Asian Development Bank (AsDB), the government of Sweden and the African Development Bank (AfDB)

The ATI uses 39 weighted indicators to assess development organisations commitment to aid transparency and publication of aid information.
