This course is specifically designed for organisations receiving funds where IATI is a requirement, giving participants the knowledge and skills needed to publish data effectively and efficiently to any donor.

More and more donors are requiring their funded partners to publish data to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Registry. This one day highly practical course explains everything you need to know.

Course structure

Delivered in-house for your organisation, either in person or online (includes live sessions and group/individual online activities).

Who is it for?

The course is highly relevant if you’re planning, managing or operationalising the IATI publishing in your organisation, for instance to share information on your projects, enhance your transparency and meet donor grant or contract requirements.

What you will learn

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify the best tools to use to meet DFID and Netherlands MFA requirements
  • Maximise organisation buy-in and resourcing to publish to the standard
  • Explain the types of information you will be sharing via IATI and the risks and opportunities associated with this
  • Set up a sustainable business process for IATI data publishing
  • Use the IATI supported software

An invaluable starting point for organisations who are new to IATI. The workshop provides a unique opportunity to understand the often complicated IATI context and requirements, while providing a useful platform to ask all those publishing questions. I would recommend it to any organisation working towards IATI compliance.
