  • 1. It is important to understand the distribution of aid flows within a country in order to better target aid, however research on the distribution of aid has almost exclusively been conducted at the cross-country level. This is in large part due to the lack of data available on sub-national locations. By providing this information, this would enable decision-makers to know how to more effectively allocate development resources at the sub-national level. This will enable better targeting of aid efforts once underserved regions are more easily identified. 2. Understanding the precise location of development activities allows governments, donors and citizens to monitor progress and outcomes, and would encourage those at the local level to provide feedback on development projects in their area. 3. Enabling donors to see where other donor projects are located allows them to avoid duplicating efforts in the same region and increases the efficiency of development resources. 4. The volume of information provided by donors can make it difficult to make sense of the data. Being able to visualize the locations of all development activities on a map can enhance understanding of patterns in aid allocation. Making this information easier to understand will increase accessibility and use of the data among a wide group of stakeholders. 5. The IATI encourages development organizations to make information the “Who, Where, and How” of development projects publicly available and easy to use and understand. Crucial to this is the Where- geographical information on where organizations are operating within countries. This information allows governments, citizens and donors to gain a more comprehensive picture of donor activities within countries, thus enabling better decision-making.
