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 development is both complimentary to and a crucial part of the success of the global transparency agenda. As part of the OECD, the DAC is working towards making this "transparency transformation" a success through:
In line with this transparency agenda, stakeholders in Busan resolved to 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 electronic publication of timely, comprehensive and forward-looking information on resources for development co-operation by the end of 2015.
IMPLEMENTATION SCHEDULES FOR THE COMMON STANDARD
The Busan agreement requires 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) have developed a template. In this schedule, Busan endorsers can explain how they will improve transparency up to December 2015.
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.
