UNDP remains the most transparent aid organisation in the world for the second consecutive year, according to a leading global ranking released last week. The 2016 Aid Transparency Index recognized UNDP as the leading aid organisation among 46 international agencies, representing 98 per cent of Official Development Flows. The index, which is produced by Publish What You Fund, a non-profit organisation that advocates for and measures transparency, also ranks SDC's priority multilateral organisations UNICEF, the Global Fund, World Bank - IDA, IADB, ASDB and AFDB among the top ten most transparent aid organisations.
