Open information and transparency

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) is a global campaign to make spending on international aid clearer and more accessible to donors, civil society and the public. IATI helps ensure that aid money is being spent properly and effectively. It also allows data to be gathered in one place, bringing out trends and analysis that can improve aid.

Saferworld is committed to working in an accountable and open way. We invite beneficiaries, funders, and the wider international community to examine our aid spending.

While seeking to maximise our transparency, there will be circumstances in which we may choose not to disclose certain information to avoid compromising our ability to deliver projects in specific locations, or risking the safety and security of our staff, partners and beneficiaries. We will not publish information on activities which would:

  • place the security of staff, partners or beneficiaries at risk;
  • harm Saferworld or our partners’ operations, resulting in them being banned, restricted or suspended, or cause a negative impact on the communities we work with;
  • break legal, copyright, child protection, data protection, partner confidentiality, commercial or contractual obligations;
  • harm either the financial interests or the intellectual property rights of Saferworld or our partners.

We have published data on our projects for the Financial Years 2011/2012 through to 2017/2018 (up to September 2017) through the IATI Standard, which can be found on the IATI Registry. This data will be updated quarterly (in arrears) over the lifetimes of the projects.

Our IATI data is available to view or download as an xml file here.

If you would like to find out more about our work, the Issues and Where we work pages on this website are regularly updated to cover all of our current projects and areas of work.
