Mohinga: ‘soup’ in Myanmar language, transparency in ours

Over the past few decades, aid flows have increased significantly. But when it comes to achieving human development outcomes, how effective is it? By making aid funding information available, we can improve transparency and make sure it’s going where it’s needed.

It started from a simple sketch on paper. Now, Mohinga has grown into a platform that monitors billions in aid funding and thousands of individual development activities. Launched in 2015, it was designed working with Myanmar’s Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development. It’s Myanmar’s primary source of aid data and enables better dialogue on aid transparency. Visit the platform here to see for yourself.

Donors can report directly to Mohinga, and it also imports data from the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). It fuses this with locally collected aid data for the first time, so it’s all stored in one place. It can be filtered by location, sector, program status and commitment status. With the ability to see where aid funding goes, we’re looking at more effective policymaking, improved government planning, and better decision making for donors.

Mohinga makes aid funding to Myanmar visible to anyone.

"Myanmar’s vision is that our country enjoys an enabling environment which maximises the positive impact that development assistance can have in the lives of our people."
