IATI Guided Implementation Quarter 2 – September 6th 2021

Webinar in which we look back on the first IATI publication, and add new information to the published activities.

Zoom link is in the Netherlands Corner. Please make sure you have joined the Netherlands Corner, because all updates will be shared there. Please note we will give the remaining webinars only once, so you can’t pick between morning and afternoon sessions!

Deadlines

Your deadline: 6 December. If you’re late, just do it when you can, but we can’t guarantee that we will be able to check your data before the next webinar, so you run the risk of falling behind. This deadline is possibly the most important one, because getting this part right means the rest of the work is much easier.

Our deadline: 10 January. We will have checked everything that was done before December 6th, and hopefully as many of the ones that came in late, as well. The earlier you are done, the better your chances that you will be able to fix any mistakes on time before the next webinar.
