We believe that liberating data on aid and development can be transformational. It can facilitate inclusive dialogue, enable decisions based on evidence and challenge us to assess progress more rigorously.
But supplying more data alone is not enough. It is people - citizens, scholars, government and donor officials - that give information purpose and put it to work for positive change in our world.
AidData not only publishes a comprehensive development finance data portal, but invests in creating tools, analysis and training that makes this information useful in research, program planning and advocacy.
We work with donors, governments and civil society groups to build their confidence and skills in incorporating data on development resources and results within their daily work.
