In recent years, various organisations, such as the IATI, have been set up to campaign for international aid transparency. Most are focused on the supply side of transparency, making data and online tools available to local watchdogs, journalists, parliamentarians, activists and concerned citizens. Who really uses those to follow development money, to track performance and to make aid recipients accountable? How? With what concrete impact on aid efficiency?
From community-based initiatives to capacity building programs and journalism projects, this new LinkedIn group explores the demand side of international aid transparency efforts, and their impact on local governance and the accountability of aid recipients.
