Transparency in Swedish development aid


Cybercom has helped develop OpenAid, a service providing digital transparency to Swedish development aid. The website www.openaid.se allows people to see when, how, to whom, and for what purpose Swedish development aid has been paid.

The information includes financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and other authorities that administer development aid. This type of information was previously very difficult to access because the data was scattered throughout different systems.

Openaid.se brings together everything in one place, which improves the transparency of development aid, and may in turn lead to increased dialogue on aid effectiveness and outcomes.
