Review of Impact and Effectiveness of Transparency and Accountability Initiatives. Annex 5: Aid transparency.
The scope of this work is the transparency and accountability of aid-givers rather than aid-recipients, and to issues of process rather than content, although there is a tendency towards official donors using aid funds (rather than civil service administrative budgets) to fund initiatives that directly enhance their own and their peers’ accountability or transparency (which counts as content in the distinction drawn above). Within this, we focus on the transparency and accountability of donors to stakeholders in both their own countries and the countries where they work.
