The New Zealand Institute for Pacific Research invites you to a seminar:

The Lowy Institute Pacific Aid Map

Mapping Foreign Assistance in the Pacific presented by principal researcher Jonathan Pryke

Foreign aid is an important resource for the Pacific Islands, and for many countries is a major point of engagement with the region. Yet public information at the project level is sparse, often lacks detail, and is difficult to access. This lack of transparency reduces the effectiveness of aid.

The Pacific Aid Map is an analytical tool designed to enhance aid effectiveness in the Pacific by improving coordination, alignment, and accountability of foreign aid through enhanced transparency of aid flows. The resource has collected data on close to 13,000 projects in 14 countries from 62 donors from 2011 onwards. This raw data has been made freely available on an interactive multifaceted platform, allowing users to interrogate and manipulate the information in a variety of ways.
