16_G_Netherland MFA

OVERVIEW

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

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the organisation responsible for Dutch bilateral development cooperation. The Netherlands was one of the first donors to begin publishing to the IATI Registry in September 2011 and is the current chair of the IATI Steering Committee.

ANALYSIS

Achievements and progress
  • The Netherlands has made significant progress in the 2016 Index graduating into the ‘good’ category for the first time with an overall improvement of 12.8% points relative to 2014.
  • The Netherlands has significantly increased the comprehensiveness of its IATI organisation and activity files publishing a further eight indicators.
  • The Netherlands now publishes all but ten indicators to the IATI Registry, four of which are always published in other formats.
Challenges and room for improvement
  • Though all indicators are published either to the IATI Standard or in non-IATI formats, the Netherlands does not publish a complete organisation file to the Registry.
  • At the activity level Memoranda of Understanding, contracts, budget identifiers and conditions are not published in any format.
  • The Netherlands does not publish results data and there is further room for improvement on sub-national locations.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • The Netherlands should aim for full implementation of the IATI Standard prioritising the publication of a complete organisation file.
  • At the activity level, it should consistently publish more activity- related documents and performance data in the IATI Standard.
  • It should continue to promote the access and use of its aid information by others particularly at country level.
