This webinar is part of the project Monitoring the Grand Bargain commitment on transparency, funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. DI is working with Grand Bargain signatories to raise awareness of the IATI Standard, improve technical capacity to publish and use humanitarian aid data, and continue to ensure that the Standard meets the needs of the humanitarian community. At the same time, the project will support Grand Bargain signatories and the wider humanitarian community to monitor progress against the transparency commitment.
