That depends. Sometimes, this idea is incorrect. IATI results and indicators can have many ways of measuring. There are in fact five, including qualitative indicators. Have a look here and see if one of them fits to your results you use non-numerical measures like qualitative indicators, METIS will of course not visualise it in an aggregated way, but you will still have reported your results in IATI, in a way that fits the nature of the activity. This is in line with the MFA Guidelines.

If this doesn’t solve the issue, you can post a question on our forum to see what other IATI publishers think. As a last resort, you could attach a narrative document on the results to your IATI report on this activity.
