Benefits

Benefits

Publish information once, rather than responding to multiple, ad-hoc data requests, including under Freedom of Information legislation

Improved understanding by citizens and parliamentarians in donor countries – helps make the case for aid

Demonstrates commitment to tackle corruption and ensures that aid is well spent

Improves information sharing by donors at country level and between HQ and country levels within donor agencies

Publication can help to ensure better quality information; Better information facilitates higher quality research and evaluation


Further benefits

Further benefits..

Stronger focus on results – helps to understand what works and what doesn’t

Potential for greater automation of reporting over time (and reducing associated transaction costs)

Meeting information needs of line ministries, not just finance and planning

Strengthens mutual accountability through improved information on donor performance

Consistent use of Common definitions – E.g., what US calls a disbursement is what others call a commitment.

Improves internal management for donors (UNDP’s own experience)
