Germany has considerably increased its level of transparency regarding its technical development cooperation, according to the Aid Transparency Index (ATI). The ATI assesses the overall committment of organisations to transparency as well as the information published at organisational level and for individual activities.

 

Since 2013, The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), having a leadership role in setting Germany’s development cooperation policy and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, implementing development cooperation on behalf of the German Government, the European Union and other donors, have improved their score from 45.9 percent ("fair") to 63.2 percent ("good").

 

BMZ and GIZ have achieved to increased the frequency of its IATI publication to quarterly and begun publishing conditions data to the IATI Registry. Recommendations from ATI suggest to publish data more consistently and more frequent, and to include activity budgets.

 

Germany has already met the Busan commitment on aid transparency partly. The Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (Busan, South Korea, November 2011) sought to assess progress in improving the quality of aid against the agreed commitments and share global experiences in delivering the best results. The forum agreed upon a document to further the effectiveness of aid and development efforts and pursuit of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
