UNDP calls for transparency in aid and development resources


19 March 2015 – There is the need to make data transparent and open in achieving success in financing for development, especially for the implementation of the up-coming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Dominic Sam, Ghana Country Director for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), said this here on Thursday in his opening remarks at the opening of a two-day UNDP and International Aid Transparency Initiative (AITI) regional workshop on data use.

According to him, Development Partners can only be effective when they can join forces in programming, avoiding duplication in projects to make efficient use of the limited financial resources available for development.
The Ghanaian government, UNDP and the IATI are jointly hosting the regional workshop which has brought together a range of actors and stakeholders in development cooperation.
