The International Aid Transparency InitIATIve (IATI)

29 June 2012

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. This will be done by publishing information on the IATI website and announcing this on organisational websites.

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 in India on 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.
