The Aid Transparency Index (ATI) is the only independent measure of transparency among the world's leading aid organizations. Donors promised to fully implement a common standard for publishing aid information – the International Aid Transparency Initiative – by December 2015. This year's ATI therefore comes at a critical time in the push for open aid data. The ATI findings highlight which donors are on- or off-track as we approach the agreed deadline. With just over a year to go, the clock is ticking.


This global launch event will present the latest ATI ranking and include a keynote address by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigerian Minister of Finance. There will also be a panel discussion with global representatives from the transparency and development sector. After the formal agenda, we will host an interactive session to explore innovative data portals that illustrate the power of open information. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., a light breakfast will be available.


Data session demonstrations will be held by: AidData, Development Initiatives, the Foreign Assistance Dashboard, InterAction, MCC, PEPFAR, Publish What You Fund, SIDA, UNDP and the World Bank Open Aid Partnership.
