OVERVIEW

Have they met the Busan commitment on aid transparency? No.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for implementing Finland’s development policy, the primary objectives of which are the promotion of gender equality, the reduction of inequality and the promotion of climate sustainability.

ANALYSIS

Challenges and room for improvement
  • The transparency of Finland has gone backwards in the 2016 Index reflected by the organisation’s falling back into the ‘poor’ category, having achieved the rank of ‘fair’ in 2014.
  • Finland only publishes to the IATI Registry at a frequency of less than quarterly.
  • None of the items assessed in the Index which could be found on the organisation’s website are published in a machine-readable format.
  • No activity-related documents are published to the IATI Registry. Budget documents are not published at all. No activity performance information is published in any format.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Finland should aim to publish to the IATI Registry at least quarterly, if not monthly. Furthermore, it should make marked improvements to the comprehensiveness of its IATI publication, both at the organisation and activity level.
  • It should publish a complete organisation file to the IATI Registry and make country strategies consistently available. It should also provide detailed disaggregated budget information and budgets on its development activities.
  • Finland should provide a searchable project database or aid portal under and open licence to promote use with its counterparts.
