What is IATI?

IATI is an open data standard for international development and humanitarian projects. Publishing project data online is mandatory for certain donors including the Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK Government and the Dutch government. Publishing project data online improves transparency and makes the results of projects accessible to the public and press.

IATI in numbers:

  • 1,100,723 activities have been published to the IATI standard to date
  • 923 different publishers have used or are using IATI to date
  • 119 projects have been uploaded to IATI by the Scottish Government
  • 25 of our 152 network members publish to IATI
  • IATI emerged from the transparency principles agreed within the Paris Declaration in 2005
