Anthony Funnell of Future Tense, a RadioNational program by Australia National Broadcasting, writes on China's growth in aid, increasing calls for aid transparency (and why donors may reluctant), and the mixed progress on the Sustainable Development Goals. Brad Parks, AidData's executive director, is interviewed on AidData's effort to catalogue China's global footprint of development projects, and Samantha Custer, AidData's director of policy analysis, is interviewed on AidData's study examining whether funding was aligned to the Millennium Development Goals, and how funding is (or is not) currently in line with the SDGs.
