The Government transparency target set out in the 2015 Aid Strategy commits all Official Development Assistance (ODA) spending departments to achieve ‘Good’ or ‘Very Good’ in the International Aid Transparency Index (IATI) by 2020. The Home Office is working to improve the transparency of our its aid projects and achieve at least a ‘Good’ rating’ on the Aid Transparency Index by 2020.
