Brian Atwood discusses his support for the International Aid Transparency Initiative.
The DAC is in a new era. We are as much behind transparency as we possibly could be . . . there is no negative reaction to our embracing the Busan commitment to integrate these important initiatives, the CRS and IATI, and to create a common standard and begin implementing it, with full force . . . It will change the behaviour of donors, it will change the behaviour of partner countries, and it will make it easier for us to implement all of the other provisions of Busan.
