If your receive funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID), or the Dutch or Belgian governments, you are required to publish your activities in IATI. We see other donors moving this way as well. Use IATI to show that your organisation is committed to international aid transparency and effectiveness as well as able to adapt to a changing environment and ready for a data oriented future.

IATI allows you to bring together both finance and results information in one Single Source of Truth. We have seen that IATI can be a driving force for enhancing your organisation’s information management processes towards data driven decision making.
