Accountability and transparency

As a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty, Oxfam is committed to being transparent in its work and accountable to its key stakeholders, in particular people living in poverty. We share information with people living in poverty, partner organisations, and the general public, and we are accountable to our staff, volunteers, supporters, donors, suppliers and host governments. The information we publish and how we respond to requests for information are important aspects of accountability.

IATI

Oxfam publishes data compliant to the transparency standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). IATI is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative, bringing together developing countries, providers of development cooperation, civil society organisations and independent experts. The IATI initiative was created to enhance aid effectiveness and efficiency by better sharing information, allow all actors to make better informed decisions.

At the centre of IATI is a Standard - a format and framework for publishing data on development cooperation activities. IATI also provides a single point of access for data published in the IATI format, called the Registry. Oxfam joined IATI to make information about our activities, spending and achievements easier to access, use and understand.  

While transparency is important if we are to remain accountable, our work also requires a rigorous data protection. Oxfam works in fragile states and countries at war. In these contexts, it is our responsibility to safeguard the protection of our staff, partners and volunteers. Oxfam's commitment to transparency is outlined in our Open Information policy.
