The International Aid Transparency Initiative

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative including donors, partner countries and CSOs which seeks to make information about aid spending easier to access, use and understand. Its purpose is to help implement the transparency commitments made at the Accra Agenda for Action in the most consistent and coherent ways. IATI has developed and agreed a common, open, international standard – the IATI standard. This sets guidelines for publishing information about aid spending.


The Bank is a signatory to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) since April 2011.
In December 2012, AfDB released its initial implementation schedule for the IATI standard, which outlines how and when the Bank plans to release more information as part of its commitment to IATI. 


The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) is pleased to launch its first publication of International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) data. This publication comes in fulfilment of AfDB’s commitment to transparency and accountability in the use of its resources. Read More
