Mixed record on EU donor aid transparency

The donor aid transparency index paints a mixed picture on how the European Commission disperses its aid funds outside the EU. The study, published on Monday (1 October), by the London-based Publish What You Fund campaign, ranked the commission’s directorate on development and cooperation (DEVCO) among the most transparent in a list of 72 donor organisations.
Devco’s annual budget for 2011 was over € 7 billion, said the campaign. However, the same study placed the commission’s directorate on enlargement (DG Enlargement) near the bottom of the index.
The pro-transparency campaign ranked donors by organisation, country and activity by using a set of 43 different transparency indicators.
The European Parliament will vote on the member state budget amendments on Thursday. EU member state Malta ranks at the very bottom, just below China, followed by Hungary, Cyprus, Greece and Bulgaria. At the top is the UK’s department for International Development, followed by the World Bank and the Netherlands.
