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.  

Latest New Zealand IATI data

The data below covers all aid activities since 1 January 2012, and includes planned and actual expenditure up until 30 September 2019.

The standard format for publishing IATI data is xml. From this format users can convert the data into tables, spreadsheets, web applications, printed documents and other visual representations. We recognise publishing data in xml format is only beneficial for machine readers. We plan to develop tools and interactive graphical representations of our transparency data. In the meantime you can use the following links to view our latest data using the IATI Previewer and in CSV format.

IATI Previewer (external link) — the preview function allows you to view the data in the way it was published, without analysing or changing the raw data.
