The UNICEF Transparency Portal

Welcome to the UNICEF Transparency Portal. Transparency and accountability is a top priority for UNICEF in delivering development and humanitarian results for children. The UNICEF Transparency Portal is part of our continuous efforts to being open and transparent through direct communication to the public on how and where we use resources. Read more
As a signatory to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) since 2012, UNICEF publishes IATI datasets in downloadable XML format on a monthly basis. UNICEF continues to strengthen the depth and quality of programme and operational data available to the public, and is consistently featured in the top performing organizations in the IATI dashboard. UNICEF's commitment to being open and transparent is also acknowledged by the latest 2020 Aid Transparency Index (ATI), which UNICEF is placed in "very good" category and ranked 6th out of 47 organizations assessed.

In 2020, UNICEF was reappointed to the IATI Governing Board, and is contributing to efforts to move the discourse beyond compliance to the IATI Common Standard, to the quality and use of published data for effective delivery of development and humanitarian programmes. UNICEF is also supporting the use of IATI to reduce transaction costs of reporting and improve the value of data through the analysis that is enabled by interoperability.

As a member of the inter-agency Transparency Task Team, UNICEF actively advocates for increased transparency across the UN system. Through this, a number of other UN agencies have signed up to IATI and committed to publicly disclose information on aid spending and make it easier for all stakeholders to find, use and compare standardized data.

UNICEF has been pursuing a series of measures to make more information about programme and operation performance as well as funds spending available and understandable to the public. This enhances on-going efforts to make the organization more efficient, responsive, and better able to collaborate and achieve results for children, especially the most disadvantaged and marginalized.

UNICEF's Information Disclosure Policy explicitly outlines its commitment to making programmes and operations information available to the public. UNICEF has in place a policy for full public disclosure of internal audit reports issued after 30 September 2012. A growing number of corporate documents such as country programme documents, evaluation reports, details on supply and logistics, financial rules and regulations, and annual programme results reports are also accessible through this portal.

Information available in the open datasets on this website has been extracted directly from UNICEF's operating system (VISION) as well as other data systems, and reflects inputs made by individual UNICEF Offices. The contents of the datasets are updated on a monthly basis with efforts focused on improvements in completeness, quality and comprehensiveness.
