Publish both humanitarian and development activities

Organisations are strongly encouraged to publish data on all their spending and activities. This includes activities associated with managing a humanitarian emergency for example, a UN agency launching an international appeal to fund their response or an NGO delivering increased medical and food supplies. The response also includes longer-term development activities, for example, a donor providing additional funding for debt relief to developing countries affected.
