Transparency Unit Foreign & Commonwealth Office King Charles St London SW1A 2AH



As part of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Action Plan we are committed to bringing FCO ODA up to the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). We have now developed an IATI Implementation Plan setting out how we intend to approach the publication of ODA data. The plan is underpinned by milestones setting out how we will work to deliver on each stage of the Implementation Plan. From now on our ODA data will be easier to find, understand and analyse.
