About Transparency is a fundamental part of improving the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of crisis prevention and response. The commitment by Grand Bargain signatory organisations to publish timely, transparent, harmonised and open high-quality data on humanitarian financing by May 2018 – using the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) as the basis for a common standard – sets a clear direction for improving humanitarian data for better accountability, decision-making and learning.

The workshops will bring together humanitarian data publishers and users to explore the rationale, use and benefits of IATI Standard and how it can be further enriched to meet and monitor the needs of the humanitarian community. They will address questions such as:

  • What types of data and information on humanitarian funding and activities are needed?
  • What are the key challenges and incentives for organisations to publish better data on their humanitarian activities?
  • How can humanitarian stakeholders be supported in publishing and using aid data?

Notes

This workshop 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 signatory organisations to raise awareness of the IATI Standard, improve technical capacity to publish and use humanitarian aid data, and continue to ensure that the IATI 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.
