Publish What You Fund Campaign calls on donors for transparency

Publish What You Fund Campaign calls on donors for transparency

The Publish What You Fund campaign called on donor governments to act immediately on commitments to greater transparency of aid made in the Accra Agenda for Action on Aid Effectiveness.

Donor governments have committed to publish "regular, detailed, and timely" information on aid spending. They also committed to open procurement of services, as well as to providing "full and timely information" on current and planned aid spending, up to 5 years in advance. Publish What You Fund calls for this information to be made available without delay.

The Publish What You Fund Campaign brings together groups working on aid, good governance and the right to access information to define how greater transparency of aid can be achieved. Publish What You Fund will monitor compliance with the transparency commitments in the Accra Agenda for Action and will participate in the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) process.

The four principles of the Publish What You Fund campaign are:
1. Information on aid should be published proactively
2. Everyone has the right to request and receive information about aid
3. Information on aid should be timely, accessible and comparable
4. The right of access to information about aid should be actively promoted
