At the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016 a number of donor governments, multilaterals, UN agencies and non-governmental organisation (NGO) networks agreed the Grand Bargain, which included a set of proposals and commitments to increase the transparency of humanitarian financing.
As a first step, the Grand Bargain signatories committed to publishing timely, transparent, harmonised and open high-quality data on humanitarian funding and activities within two years of the Summit, and they identified the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) as the basis for a common standard.
Our project works towards two main outcomes by June 2018. These are:
- Increased understanding by the humanitarian community of progress by Grand Bargain signatories in publishing to the IATI Standard, and the incentives and barriers to increased publication.
- Increased capacity of Grand Bargain signatories to publish and use timely, transparent, harmonised and open high-quality data on humanitarian funding.
