Development of Web-Application Software “International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI)-AIMS import module” for ERD – AEB

The Aid Effectiveness project is being implemented to promote aid effectiveness in Bangladesh (AEB) and in particular to strengthen GoB’s aid management capacities and systems to improve development results. The objective of the project is to increase the effectiveness, transparency and accountability in allocation, management and use of foreign assistance by strengthening national aid management capacities and systems, as well as by enhancing collective dialogue and coordination mechanisms.

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) was launched in September 2008. IATI is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative that seeks to improve the availability of aid information in order to increase aid effectiveness. IATI brings together development partners and developing countries, civil society organizations and other experts in aid information who are committed to working together to increase the transparency of aid. The IATI Standard is a machine-readable format for sharing aid information in a timely,  accessible, comparable and comprehensive format.

Donors publish data on their aid activities, generally direct out of their project management systems. This data can then be imported into different systems, including the Bangladesh AIMS.

The IATI import module provides an interface through which donors can import data published by their own headquarters into the AIMS.
