Financing for Development report 2018 references IATI

  • April 26, 2018

The Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development has referenced IATI in a new report.

Financing for Development: Progress and Prospects 2018 was launched at the ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development (24 – 26 April).

The report reviews the implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, signed by governments in 2015 to finance the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

IATI is referenced in Chapter III.G: Science, technology, innovation and capacity-building

To the extent that technologies increase transparency
and accountability in development cooperation,
they could also help raise the general public
willingness to provide support. As an example,
through the International Aid Transparency Initiative
(IATI), data systems and standards are already
in place to track financial flows to development and
humanitarian projects. Increasing numbers of publishers
are adding results to their published projects
and increasing traceability.
