31_F_Switzerland SDC

OVERVIEW

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

Part of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is responsible for Swiss bilateral development assistance and humanitarian aid.

ANALYSIS

Challenges and room for improvement
  • After making progress in the 2014 Index, Switzerland’s transparency has faltered in 2016, with a score of 45.4%.
  • Switzerland publishes an organisation file to IATI, but the file did not contain current and forward-looking information at the time of review.
  • Of the eleven activity-level indicators not published to the IATI Registry, only three are made available in other formats. Five indicators are not published at all, including impact appraisals, activity budgets and Memoranda of Understanding.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Switzerland should update its organisation file on the IATI Registry so it is comprehensive and includes financial information.
  • It should publish more details on activities to the IATI Registry
  • Switzerland should improve the accessibility of its data by allowing for bulk export of the data under an open license on its portal.
