Understand and discuss the value of transparency for the international development sector

The Transparency group brings Bond member organisations together to discuss the value of transparency and accountability for international development and humanitarian organisations. We are building connections with FCDO and with the main transparency initiatives such as Open Government Partnership, IATI and Extractives Industry Transparency Initiative, and cover areas such as the right to access information and SDG 16.

We also look at practical issues for organisations wanting to increase their own transparency. We meet online every quarter, plus occasional special events and speakers. This online space is a place for the group to share links, learning  and information on transparency and accountability.

This group also has an IATI Community of Practice to support Bond members, share knowledge and keep in touch with UK Government IATI requirements and the IATI support team. Please join the IATI Community of Practice if you are responsible for your organisation's IATI data publishing.
