The Prosperity Fund is committed to meeting the government target of ‘good’ on the International Aid Transparency Index by 2020. The Fund is working closely with DFID policy and Transparency teams, benefiting from their experience and expertise and the International Aid Transparency Initiative to ensure it meets standards for transparency.

The Fund has already begun working towards this target; working with departments, including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, to publish programme information and financial data on gov.uk. It will continue to work with departments to increase the amount of information published on spend and programmes as it becomes available.
