Joint Letter: Accelerating progress on transparency at the GPEDC High Level Meeting

Next week, the world’s development actors will meet at the first High Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation in Mexico. The meeting is an opportunity to kick-start efforts to ensure governments’ transparency commitments on development cooperation are met by 2015.

Along with more than 50 other organisations, networks and individuals, Twaweza has written to Ministers and heads of donor agencies/multilateral organisations, asking them to accelerate and deepen their own transparency commitments.


At the last global meeting in Busan in 2011, development providers made a promise to publish all their aid to a common data standard by 2015. Now more information on development cooperation is being published than ever before, but the vast majority are still off-track to meet their commitment.

What are we asking?

We call on development providers to:

  • Accelerate efforts to publish timely, comprehensive and forward-looking data on all development flows in accordance with IATI and improve the quality of published data;
  • Ensure information on development cooperation is compatible and aligned with partner countries’ budgets and systems;
  • Support specific actions to improve access, dissemination and use of this data by all stakeholders at country level.

See here for more details, including a list of all recipients and all signatories to the letter.
