Our aid expenditure information is available in line with the International Aid Transparency Initiative standards, which aims to make worldwide aid spending easier to understand, compare and use.

International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) 

New Zealand is a member of the IATI, which was launched in 2008 at the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Accra, Ghana. It is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together donor countries, developing country governments, non-government organisations, and experts in aid information. It aims to increase the accessibility and availability of information about worldwide aid expenditure.

IATI has a common standard that sets guidelines for publishing and sharing information about aid spending. This makes information easier to understand, compare, and use. It also makes it easier to monitor what aid is being used for and what it is achieving in developing countries.

As part of the standard, New Zealand and all other donors’ IATI data:

  • includes information on the total aid being provided to each country, the costs and aims of individual activities, and projected aid expenditure
  • uses the same format and definitions.
