International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Publishing Starter Training
Tuesday, 30th March 2021
Duration: 10:00-12:00 UK time Tuesday 30 March and Tuesday 6 April
Time commitment: in the region of 1-day (including self-paced exercises before the workshops, peer learning and networking via the online learning platform)
Software: Zoom (all you need is a charged laptop, tablet or mobile and internet connection to join the session) with content hosted on our learning management platform
Who is it for: This session will be particularly useful for project managers and finance staff who co-ordinate donor reporting, but it will be useful for anyone with an interest in transparency, from trustees to project officers. It will be particularly useful for FCDO funded organisations. This training will be relevant for all our members whether you are an NGO, social enterprise or individual consultant working in a project team.
What you will be able to do after the course:
- Understand the goal of IATI and what you can use IATI for
- Understand the main concepts of an IATI publication
- Understand the various tools available for realising an IATI publication
- Know what is involved to move your organisation forward with IATI after the training.
Why you should attend:
Are you starting or coming to the end of a project or programme that you would like to make more visible? Are you being advised to publish your projects to IATI by an institutional donor like the FDCO? Are you interested in finding out how to be a more persuasive transparency advocate in your team and efficiently coordinating the IATI publication process?
If the answer is yes, then this is the training session for you!
This interactive workshop series will give you an overview of the practical tools available and the confidence you need to get started with sharing a project’s results and financial data via IATI. Publishing to IATI means sharing your activities with the wider sector, the press and the public. This wealth of data is used by researchers looking for collaborators, large iNGOs looking for new downstream partners and donors looking for trends in development cooperation spending. Publishing your data to IATI improves the accountability of your project but it can also help you gain future funds when IATI publishing crops up as a question at due diligence stage with a new donor.
The live sessions will create a space for dialogue and peer learning between members, helping us share and solve some of the challenges we face publishing to IATI.
