Unlocking aid

Aidinfo and the Open Knowledge Foundation have launched a consultation on their International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). It aims to establish common standards for recording and publishing aid information.

The central message is that aid information should be open: legally open, technically open and easy to find. This has been the OKFN message on a wide range of issues.

The next and more difficult step will be to agree on what types of information should be recorded for each aid project - and in what format.
