IATI Learning event: From publication to data use

Share this event

Are you looking for ways to turn publishing in IATI into something meaningful for your organization? Do you want to share your experiences with IATI (International Aid Transparency Initiative) as a tool to share and monitor progress within your programs? Join us at the 9th of May at the New World Campus in The Hague (from 12.30 coffee and registration, 13.00 start of the program)

Amongst Dutch development organisations, we see the focus shift to the actual use of data in IATI. We see a growing interest amongst organizations to unpack the black IATI box and to actually starting to use the IATI data to their advantage. IATI data starts to speak – for organisations, alliances, governments and the wider audience. We see new opportunities and challenges in the fields of data quality, dashboarding, results reporting and data security. Please be aware that participants require a basic understanding of and preferably experience in publishing in IATI.


The program starts at 13.00 hours with an introduction and an update about IATI trends and context. After that, we will have 3 presentations:

  1. Results Reporting: Strategic Partnerships (Anna Linders & Herman van Loon, Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) The Ministry of Foreign affairs will briefly reflect on the use of IATI within the development sector and its relevance as a tool of speaking the same language. It will continue with discussing the development and focus points of the results framework of the programme Dialogue & Dissent.
  2. Data Quality: using the IATI Data Quality Feedback tool (Rolf Kleef, Data4Development) Improving the quality of your IATI data publication is a continuous process. The IATI Data Quality Feedback tool can help you find ways to do that. It checks your data to see if it follows the rules and guidelines of the IATI Standard and of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as DFID. A quick tour to help you get started.
  3. Monitoring with your own data: the DRA Joint Response dashboard (Jorien Schermers, World Vision & Peter Das, ZOA) Working together with 15 organisations in dozens of Joint Responses, IATI data promises to help monitor finances and results. That requires coordination and joint agreements on how each organisation publishes their data. What did we learn so far?

In 2 rounds of working groups, we will then share experiences with results reporting, data quality, data safety and dash boarding. We will finish the afternoon with drinks at 17 hrs, so there will be plenty of room for sharing and networking.


This is the 4th learning event that Partos yearly organises together with Data4Development where organisations share experiences and lessons with publishing in IATI and with data-driven decision making.

Join us on the 9th of May (from 12.30hrs-18.00hrs) at the New World Campus, Spaarneplein 2, 2515VK The Hague. Partos member: free, non-member fee: 75 euro.
