SPARK has the ambition to become a data driven and future proof organisation. Implementing this ambition supports them to increase their impact and accommodate their growth. The first milestone was reached with the Go live of the new financial and project management applications. D4D has been a strategic advisor to support SPARK in the implementation […]
Digitalisation is essential to make sure workers in the garment industry in Cambodia earn the money they deserve. By combining forces between the Cambodian unions CLC and C.CAWDU, the Dutch union CNV Internationaal and Data4Development, digital surveys can deliver the information needed to negotiate about the minimum wage. Especially important now that the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the textile industry hard.
In May this year, Hivos and D4D closed the Hivos Project Change, a multi-year transformation trajectory. For D4D, this was a major milestone and finalising the project brings us to reflect on the journey we made with Hivos and how we contributed to this important transformation process. What initiated this transformation process and what were […]
Last week, Data4Development gave a training on the use of IATI on data transparency, equipping 9 non-profits organisations from the UK with all the skills one’s need to start publishing on IATI. The training was organised by the Scotland’s International Development Alliance. We interviewed Laura Ffrench-Constant to get more insights about the perception of IATI within her organization.
When D4D joined forces with CNV Internationaal, a cooperation emerged that puts data in position to support labour rights on remote sugar plantations in Central America.
From 10 years ago when it started in the Netherlands to where we stand today, 1,059,495 activities were published by over 1250 organisations around the world. More and more countries commit to publishing in #IATI and the number of open #aid #data portals are on the rise. Many aid data events where IATI plays a role happened lately as the Day of Transparency of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) and the KfW virtual conference on Remote Management and Monitoring.
Increasing aid transparency is the mission of The Open Data Company as Data4Development (D4D) & Zimmerman (Z) are now joining forces. The Open Data Company provides online data services to enable international development organizations to become more data-driven. Why: Zimmerman is specialized in providing data services and building data visualization platforms using open data standards […]
More resources and funding is going to the Global South than ever before. Funders like the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and FCOO (previously DfiD) have agreed that, for increased transparency, publishing to IATI is part of the contractual obligation when receiving funding. Many more donors are supporting the IATI initiative. But if you […]
In addition to the fact that more NGOs are becoming publishers, we see a growing number of Private Sector Companies who are now publishing in IATI. We have recently started supporting one of them, the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG), who is an innovative infrastructure development and finance organisation delivering pioneering infrastructure in the poorest […]
As we wrote previously, IATI is rapidly scaling up! In recent years the initiative has grown from around 380 publishers at the start of 2016 to 1200 as of August 2020, with over 100 new publishers joining in the last half year alone. This is a great development and shows the value of IATI as […]
