Transparency and Canadian Foreign Aid
Monday 30 January 2012, by ,
It has always been hard to get timely information on Canada’s foreign aid. Now, thanks to the new “Open Government” initiative, data are easier to access on the Canadian International Development Agency’s website. With this, CIDA promises “Increasing Transparency and Accountability Through Open Data”. For the first time, downloadable datasets are made available to the public on annual disbursements of all forms of Canadian aid to all recipient countries. This is a great first step.
