Aid Atlas: a new system to know about financing for global development

Aid Atlas is an innovative platform that allows you to explore international development financing online. It gives the user the opportunity to know how many funds the funders, countries or regions allocated to certain development goals. 

Aid Atlas receives funding from the Swedish Agency for International Development, the Stockholm Centre for Sustainable Finance and the support and technical adviser to Transparent Supply Chains for Sustainable Economies (TRASE).

Its main objective is to publish a complete picture of the issuer of funds, its destination, what it is used for and the magnitude of its impacts. This platform enables researchers and organizations to streamline the tracking process to hear funding flows. Aid  Atlas exposes all requested information in an orderly manner and explains the impact that funding has on the ground to which it was earmarked.

Its interface is very intuitive. In it you can filter the data you want to know and automatically the page will expose reports and statistical charts for a better understanding. All public  Aid Atlas data comes from the OECD database, such as the  Creditor  Reporting  System  (CRS). It also integrates other data sources such as those of the World Bank.

Funding is an issue of paramount importance to third-sector organizations, countries, regions or multilateral agencies. For this reason, the platform was created with the purpose of knowing how effective development financing is in those sectors that receive it. 

Through Aid Atlas reports you can learn if there are funding gaps and in which sector are most funds concentrated in. Knowing these realities, you can work directly to make aid effective and balanced. In turn, the platform strengthens the democratic system and government indicators by identifying gaps in their funding and aid systems. As a result, they can organize and encode data about projects and programs.
