Open data

WaterAid is committed to being an open and transparent organisation, and as part of this commitment we are working towards compliance with the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI).

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) aims to make public information on aid spending and activities more available and more accessible, worldwide.

The initiative brings together donors, partner countries, civil society organisations and other users of aid information to agree common transparency standards for aid flows. The UK Government and a group of bilateral and multilateral donors launched the IATI in September 2008.

This is WaterAid's first IATI report. It shows 2010-2011, financial data for each of our established Country Programmes. The report also includes information on income from our donors and the names of the top 50 partners that we disburse funds to for the completion of our work. Our 2012 Financial accounts are in the process of being finalised and will be available in September.

We are now piloting the release of more detailed, project-by-project, data in a sample of the countries that we operate in. This level of data will be made available from the beginning of our next financial year – please see our Implementation Schedule for more details.

Please note that figures relate to the WaterAid financial year April 2010-March 2011 and are presented in pounds (thousands). Full accounts and notes on the basis of preparation can also be found in our annual reports.
