Aid architecture

Transparency

 

 

Transparency has been pushed to the top of the global agenda. The DAC's mandate to further the understanding of development finance, strengthen aid delivery, improve development policy and build partnerships for developmenis both complimentary to and a crucial part of the success of the global transparency agenda.‌

 

 The common standard: bankground and implementation schedules

In line with this transparency agenda, stakeholders at the 1st High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for EffectiveDevelopment Co-operation (GPEDC) in Busan in 2014 resolved make information on development co-operation and other development resources better available and publicly accessible. They set out to implement a common, open standard for publication of timely, comprehensive and forward-looking information on resources for development co-operation by the end of 2015. In late 2016, at the 2nd High-Level Meeting in Kenya, members of the GPEDC will take stock of the progress made in the implementation of the common standard.‌

 

The Busan agreement required the schedules for implementation of the common standard to be published by December 2012. To help Busan endorsers to publish their individual implementation schedules, the OECD Working Party on Development Finance Statistics (WP-STAT) and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) developed a template. In this schedule, Busan endorsers could explain how they will improve transparency up to December 2015. 

 

Download the template for the implementation schedule for the Common Standard (French version also available).

 

If you are a Busan endorser and would like to submit your implementation schedule, publish the implementation plan on your website, and send a copy to the OECD at dac.contact@oecd.org, copied to support@iatistandard.org

 

Should you have any question, please reach out to us at the same e-mail addresses.

 

The following endorsers of the Busan agreement have published their implementation schedules. These are published as transmitted by the Busan endorsers themselves.

 

Note: Some of the schedules are incomplete and may be updated. The implementation schedules sent to the DAC secretariat after the deadline of December 2015 are provided below with the actual date of submission.

To learn more about the common standard, please read the Communication Note produced by the Post Busan Interim Group in 2012 (EnglishFrenchArabicSpanish) or the FAQ
