Publish What You Fund

In order that development work effectively and sustainably improves the lives of those in need, it’s important to know how much money goes where, and what happens to it.

In order that development work effectively and sustainably improves the lives of those in need, it’s important to know how much money goes where, and what happens to it. Publish What You Fund campaigns to get donors to publish information about development work promptly and regularly in a standardised format, so that information from different countries can be compared. Publish What You Fund was founded at the High Level Forum for Aid Effectiveness (HLF-4) in Ghana 2008. It works with the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) and focuses primarily on the EU, USA and the World Bank. It gathered 64,000 signatures for its Make Aid Transparent campaign, which was supported by over 100 NGOs. At the High Level Forum, donor countries made a commitment to publish information until 2015. In recent years the organisation has produced studies highlighting the inadequate information on the side of the donor countries. Publish What You Fund is primarily financed by the Hewlett Foundation and the Open Society Foundation.
