Opening up UN WOMEN’s data to the public

Accountability and transparency build trust between UN WOMEN and its stakeholders, be they member states, partners or the general public. We recognize that there is a positive correlation between information transparency and aid effectiveness.
In November 2012, UN WOMEN first published project and programme data on this website (phase 1). Our starting point in phase 1: programmes approved and funds applied between January and September 2012. This means that in phase 1 we actively started making information about UN WOMEN programmes and operations publicly available except in minimal cases where the information has been deemed confidential as set out in the Information and Disclosure policy.


The open UN Women site was launched in November 2012 with phase 1 data.

  • In Phase 1 (November 2012) data on programmes and projects approved with available budget in ATLAS between January 2012 and September 2012 was made public.
  • In Phase 2 (October 2013), all remaining 2012 and 2013 projects (up to October 2013) were added.
  • In the current Phase 3, information on all programmes and projects currently under implementation and with a budget in ATLAS for 2015 has been included.

This information will be regularly updated in future years.

The International Aid Transparency Initiative

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) is a global transparency standard that makes information about aid spending easier to access, use and understand.
