The Aid Transparency Index is the only independent measure of transparency among the world’s leading aid organizations. It assesses organizations’ overall commitment to transparency as well as the information they publish at the organization level and for individual activities. It encourages the publication of timely, comprehensive and forward-looking data in an open format. As announced at the 2016 Index launch, Publish What You Fund is reviewing the methodology of the Aid Transparency Index. In order to do this, a consultation period is being opened, where the wider community is invited to comment on the proposed changes. This includes the opportunity to provide feedback on the methodology itself, the relevance of the indicators used, the weighting system and the new areas in which they would like to work on. The consultation process is starting in October 2016 and will be running until the end of the year. Further details are available here.
