Online discussion: Implementing the UKaid Transparency Guarantee

DFID is committed to improving the transparency of aid flows, both in the UK and across the international system. Greater transparency will help improve value for money, promote greater accountability to citizens in donor and developing countries, and reduce opportunities for corruption and waste. Transparency also leads to better results.

In June 2010, the Secretary of State announced the UKaid Transparency Guarantee which will make DFID’s aid fully transparent to citizens in both the UK and recipient countries.

DFID invites civil society organisations, think tanks, academia and others working on transparency to join an online discussion to inform the implementation of the UKaid Transparency Guarantee. DFID is seeking feedback on a number of questions ranging from how DFID can improve its own transparency to how DFID should work with its partners to encourage greater transparency.
