The International Aid Transparency InitIATIve (IATI)

What Is IATI?
IATI aims to increase the accountability and transparency of those who receive money for aid and international development by showing how and where it is spent. Relevant information will be published on the IATI Registry and announced on organisational websites. To learn more about the IATI, you can visit the IATI website here.

What does this mean for Aga Khan Foundation (United Kingdom) (AKF(UK))?
The UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) has committed to publishing data about work that it funds to meet the IATI standard. In response, AKF(UK) is publishing information about its DFID-funded work on the IATI Registry website (not the IATI website) and on the website. By the end of September 2012, AKF(UK) aims to publish information about its DFID-funded programmes in this way.

Our data
The information AKF(UK) will publish will relate to its DFID-funded international projects and includes the project ID, project title, short description of the project, project start and end date, country of impact, place of impact (where available), percent of strategic aims, expenditure in 2012/13, and budget for current and future financial years by project. AKF(UK)'s information about it's DFID-funded work is published here.
