The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) provides a standard to publish information on aid activities, and is intended to be used by (and useful for) all actors in development aid.
Interest is definitely growing and several organisations are investigating how to implement the standard. In several countries, national platforms of civil society organisations (CSOs) are engaging in discussions with their respective Ministries how to encourage and support implementation of IATI by CSOs. In the UK, DFID is even making IATI-compliant publication of data a condition for funding.
Behind the scenes we've been plotting another Open Data for Development Camp. We're keeping our promise: the main ODDC 2012 event will be two days in Nairobi, Kenya. On the second day, we'll have a parallel event in Amsterdam as well.
Save the dates: 27 and 28 June in Nairobi, 29 June in Amsterdam! More details to come soon! Or get in touch to help us make it a success! Email email@example.com
