The International Aid Transparency Initiative is delighted to welcome CanWach, Emergentally, the Government of Niger and the Media Foundation for West Africa as its first new members to join in 2023. These four new members join organisations from around the world in making a clear public commitment to improving the transparency of international development and humanitarian resources.

Our new member organisations bring a range of experience and data perspectives from different regions and sectors globally.

The Government of Niger decided to join over 30 other partner country governments that are already members of IATI after attending IATI’s West and Central Africa Workshop in June 2022. Delegates at that meeting received in-depth training on ways of using IATI data to inform the planning, budgeting, and coordination of the country’s development resources.

Upon confirming their new membership, Niger joined IATI’s annual Members’ Assembly for the first time, attending the event in person at UN City, Copenhagen last month. Also joining for the first time as members were the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) a civil society organisation which works to promote the rights of the media and human rights defenders, and brings the voice of its network of national partner organisations from all 16 countries in West Africa.
