Aid makes a real difference. It can save lives, put kids into school, and reduce poverty and suffering. But at the moment no one knows exactly how much money is being spent, where or on what. In most cases, not even governments receiving aid have a full picture of where all the money goes. This undermines aid’s potential and its effectiveness. With more information, citizens in both donor and recipient countries could know whether aid money was having the best possible impact.
As citizens we have a right to know how aid money is being spent. So please sign the petition calling on governments to make their aid transparent now. At a time when public budgets are under pressure and the effectiveness of international aid is being scrutinised, increased transparency is an easy win that could deliver a huge boost to poverty reduction, without needing more money.
Paul Hallern: It is important to make sure that people don't profiteer from aid. Making aid transparent will surely help ensure this
Shellie Brian: Great work. Make aid count and make the aid organisations accountable. Those that are legitimate will welcome this
