Aid Databases
OECD Data
The OECD maintains a list of developing countries and territories; only aid to these countries counts as official development assistance (ODA), which is defined as government aid designed to promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries. Loans and credits for military purposes are excluded. Aid may be provided bilaterally, from donor to recipient, or channelled through a multilateral development agency such as the United Nations or the World Bank. Aid includes grants, "soft" loans and the provision of technical assistance. Soft loans are those where the grant element is at least 25% of the total. The list is periodically updated and currently contains over 150 countries or territories with per capita incomes below USD 12 276 in 2010. Data on ODA flows are provided by the 29 OECD members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC).
NGO Aid Map
InterAction’s (http://www.interaction.org/) NGO Aid Map aims to increase the amount of publicly available data on international development and humanitarian response by providing detailed project information through interactive maps and data visualizations. 
Open Aid Data
Openaiddata.org provides detailed developing aid finance data from around the world. Unlike most other websites, this project combines data from various sources offering a more comprehensive view on foreign aid. Sources include the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), the Creditor Reporting System (CRS) of the OECD, the World Bank and the Illicit Financial Flow data set from Global Financial Integrity.
Reconstructing Gaza--Donor Pledges
At the request of Norway, as Chair of the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC), and the Palestinian Authority (PA), the World Bank is monitoring the disbursement progress of funding pledged at the “Cairo Conference on Palestine - Reconstructing Gaza” on October 12, 2014. Total pledges announced at the Cairo Conference amounted to USD 5 billion to the Palestinian Territories, of which USD 3.5 billion is intended to support Gaza. The World Bank monitors the delivery of pledges, disbursement, and implementation progress. The analysis will be included in the World Bank’s economic report presented at the AHLC meeting twice a year. Information provided on the site is consolidated with the Ministry of Planning and Administrative Development and will be updated regularly based on inputs by donors.  
Aid Transparency Index
The Aid Transparency Index (ATI) is the only global measure of the state of aid transparency in the world’s leading aid organizations. It is a project of Publish What You Fund (http://www.publishwhatyoufund.org/). They also offer an Aid Transparency Tracker at http://tracker.publishwhatyoufund.org/ that shows what donors publish and what they commit to publishing. 
Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism Database
Produced by the United Nations Office for Project Services (https://www.unops.org/english/Pages/Home.aspx), this website provices access to real-time information about purchases through the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism, including shelters, residential, projects, and vendors. Also available in Arabic.
Civil Society Self-Regulatory Initiatives
Beyond compiling a list of over 300 initiatives, this database provides descriptive and analytical information including full texts of initiatives, analysis of compliance mechanisms, similar initiatives, and assessments of the role of many initiatives within the CSO sector. The One World Trust worked in partnership with the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL) and has partnered with CIVICUS (http://civicus.org).
