Publish What You Fund is the global campaign for aid transparency. We believe that aid is a precious resource, and the people who benefit from aid have the right to determine how it is spent. We produce the Aid Transparency Index, an annual ranking that encourages donors to publish more information online. We work in close partnership with the International Aid Transparency Initiative, and are members of the IATI members’ assembly along with InterAction.
