About the Campaign

Thank you to everyone who made the Make Aid Transparent campaign a success in 2011! There is still a lot of work to be done. We will be launching a new campaign in 2014 so look out for information on that soon!

So what is the campaign?

Make Aid Transparent is a coalition of 105 civil society organisations who have come together to call on donors to publish more and better information about the aid they give.

2011 was a critical moment. At the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Korea, governments, foundations and multilateral organisations measured their progress towards greater aid effectiveness.  A big public push for aid transparency demonstrated the appetite for change and encouraged donors to redouble efforts to reach their targets.

The campaign launched in June 2011. By July 7th over 5000 public signatures from 115 countries were being handed over to development leaders at the OECD in Paris, with over 70 organisations supporting the campaign.

The campaign culminated at the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea. A number of donors made a crucial step forward by publishing information about their aid spending while others, including the world’s largest donor, the U.S., signed up to an international common standard which has the potential to transform the way aid is managed.

Now the focus is on implementation – and making sure donors honour their commitments made in Busan.
