Publishing data in the IATI format can help organisations and their stakeholders get a better grip on the quality of their information and on their impact. Organisations in a Strategic Partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs had to publish their first data sets before May 1st.

How did the process go, and what insights and learning points did it bring?

Wednesday 6th July 12:30–18:00: workshop

IATI Workshop
IATI Workshop

On Wednesday July 6th, Data4Development*) is organising a workshop to discuss this. The focus will be on learning, exchanging experiences, and formulating recommendations for the use of IATI and open data as the updates for the second quarter are about to be published. Sharing lessons learned and experiences will help in further improveming data quality and relevance.

We’ll work with four case studies of organisations, including the Ministry, and offer opportunities to jointly explore ideas.

Goals of the workshop

  • Network with organisations that publish IATI data and want to use open data.

More information (in Dutch) is available at the Data4Development website.

Would you like to present as a case study, please get in touch.

You’re also welcome to share your experiences in online discussions.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite. Hope to see you there!

*) Since a few months I’m partnering with Data4Development to deliver a broad range of IATI services together, from technical advice and feedback on data to ICT and information system change management and improving (open) data and information quality.
