openaidNL, a new IATI platform for transparency in aid development
In September 2011 the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs started publishing data on all the aid development projects it finances. The data is published in the international IATI standard which is easy for computers to read, but very hard
for humans.
 
On openaid.nl the information is made accessible through a web interface. Openaid.nl is an initiative of Akvo.org, a Dutch non-profit organisation dedicated to developing internet and mobile tools that make aid more efficient and transparent. Every three months, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs publishes an update of all activities which are currently active. The data includes information on commitments and expenditures, sectors, recipient countries, types of aid, and recipient organisations. In total, over 2000 activities are reported. For more inquiries or information about this project or about becoming IATI compliant (International Aid Transparency Initiative) please get in touch with our team.
