French aid transparency among the worst in the world

In 2014, France launched a drive for greater transparency in its official development assistance. But two years on, results have proved elusive, and France is still among Europe’s worst performers. EurActiv France reports. Regularly criticised for the lack of transparency in its official development assistance (ODA) programmes, Paris took steps in 2014 to bring its activities into line with international standards. So far, the results have not been convincing. The French government launched the French aid to priority countries website in an attempt to improve the traceability of its ODA. The site was supposed to provide information on all financial aid packages of more than €100,000 to 16 priority African countries (Benin, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Chad, etc.). In practice, the aim was to allow the citizens of the countries concerned to follow the implementation of development and humanitarian projects financed by France.
