The 2014 ATI provides an overview of how some of the biggest and most influential providers of development cooperation fare in terms of the transparency of their activities. The data collection process for the ATI has highlighted that many organisations are yet to take a systematic approach to publishing information on their development activities. Much of the data is still scattered across websites and it is difficult to join the dots between the descriptive, financial and performance information related to individual activities. Several organisations rely on labour-intensive, manual processes for publishing their information rather than automating them, meaning that data quality remains a significant challenge. This emphasises the need for process and systems improvements across the board, which in turn require political will and a real commitment to make aid transparent – and for many donors, there is an urgent need to act if they are to meet the 2015 deadline.
