IATI Guided Implementation

Welcome! IATI Guided Implementation is a programme centered around four webinars in which we demystify IATI in stages. Each webinar, we focus on part of your activity’s data. After each webinar, you have three months to publish that part of the data and get feedback on the results. At the end of this programme, the data will be complete and you will have a good understanding of how IATI works, what each element means, and how we (and others) use your data. You can now take it from here yourself.

Each quarter, you will get:

  • An introductory webinar in which we cover that quarter’s topics, explain why and how, and you can ask questions
  • An online community in which you will find others working on the same topics. You will usually find that you’re not the only one stuck on a certain topic. Ask questions, read tips, and help others if you can. You will also find us there.
  • Weekly consultation hours for live contact with us. These will be smaller online meetings with who ever needs some extra help that week.
  • This website with all resources you need to do each quarter’s work.

Want to join us? Register here. Please be aware that we are roughly half way, and catching up will take some time from you, but it’s still possible. When you register, you will not receive a confirmation email. You will also not receive invitations to the webinars in your mailbox. Please read how this programme works and how you catch up in the links below.
