Where Does My Money Go?

In part to celebrate International Right to Know Day (which was Tuesday) MFAN Partner Publish What You Fund has worked with the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Open Knowledge Foundation to produce an aid data visualization for the UK.  This interactive map shows how the UK distributed its aid budget from 2004-2009, breaking it down by region and international agency.  With transparency and accountability being top priorities for the Obama administration, this accessible, innovative graphic is a great model for the public to see how their money is being spent.

See a snapshot of the 2008-2009 spending below and click here to use the interactive features:

Though they note this is still a work in progress, read more about this initiative by visiting the Where Does My Money Go blog.  You can also download the full data used for the graphic.
