Denmark – Ministry of Foreign Affairs

OVERVIEW

Have they met the Busan commitment on aid transparency? Partly.

The 2016 Aid Transparency Index takes into account information published by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and Danida. Danida refers to Denmark’s development cooperation, which is an area of activity under the MFA.

ANALYSIS

Achievements and progress
  • Denmark has improved its score by 15% points relative to 2014 and has moved up in the ‘good’ category, partially meeting its Busan commitment to make aid fully transparent.
  • It now publishes eight more indicators to the IATI Registry relative to 2014.
  • Denmark is among the top five performers on organisation financial indicators.
Challenges and room for improvement
  • Country strategies are published only sometimes meaning that Denmark does not publish a complete organisation file.
  • Nine activity-level indicators are not published to the IATI Registry. Sub-national locations, budget documents and impact appraisals are sometimes published in other non-IATI formats. Memoranda of Understanding, budget identifiers and conditions are not published at all.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Denmark should publish country strategies to IATI in order to have a complete organisation file. It should also improve its activity level publication so it is comprehensive.
  • In particular, it should aim to publish more than objectives for activity related documents to IATI.
  • It should realise the benefits of its transparency efforts and develop a strategy to promote internal and external use of its data particularly at country level.
