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. UNICEF’s efforts are reflected in our scores in the annual Aid Transparency Index - UNICEF is now ranked as the 3rd most transparent out of 46 major donor organizations worldwide. Read more UNICEF is also recognized as the organization that has made the most significant progress since joining the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), and is one of only 10 organizations that fulfilled their commitment to making information about their finances, programmes and results public by the end of 2015.
As a member of the UN Development Group’s inter-agency Transparency Task Team, UNICEF is actively advocating 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 was recently appointed to the IATI Governing Board, and is contributing to efforts to move discourse beyond compliance to the IATI Common Standard, to one where transparency underpins the delivery of development and humanitarian programmes, and drives global efforts for more efficient and effective use of aid.
UNICEF has been pursuing a series of measures to make more information about programme and operation performance as well as funds spending available 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.
