The UNDP launched an open data browser (open.undp.org) today, implementing its voluntary commitment to International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), an initiative to make aid information easier to access, understand and use. Through mapping and visualizing $5.8+ billion in funding data across 6,000+ projects in 177 countries, users can search by any focus area (incl. democratic governance), funding cataloger, country, and donor or recipient to find information about individual UNDP project funding and outcomes.

Offers widgets that allow users to embed UNDP open aid data into other websites and digital channels. Country offices may use widgets to visualize their own projects on their web. The site is more than an Excel spreadsheet. For example, with help from Development Seed, the website has clean visuals and plenty of interactivity.
