The IATI journey

Produce IATI: With the increasing requirement to publish in IATI, publishing your organisational data according to the IATI standard is important. Whether you are new to IATI or have worked with it before, making your data IATI-ready can be a tricky task. How do you produce and publish IATI files if you have many projects? And what should you do if the information is spread over multiple systems? At Data4Development, we focus on making the IATI data process easy for you.

Use IATI: In order to use your IATI data for data driven decision making, you need to extract insights from your data. This can be challenging, especially if you are collaborating with multiple organisations on large projects. Data4Development can develop dashboards to visualise your IATI data in an interactive way. Another reason to use your IATI data is that as a nonprofit you are proud of the work you do and the results you achieve. Therefore it is key to engage your audience and donors, to keep them informed on your results. Data4Development can help you leverage your IATI data to effectively communicate your results and increase your impact.

Improve data quality: If you are already publishing IATI data there are multiple reasons you and your organisation should care about the quality of your IATI data. Of course, you want to comply with the requirements of your donors and/or stakeholders. Moreover, accurate IATI data shows that you are a professional organisation able to deliver representative and high quality data. Also, you might decide to use your IATI data for presenting your projects on your website or for following the progress of projects in your organisation’s dashboard. It is important that your data is correct and accurate, since you would of course want to base your decisions on reliable data!
