IATI Virtual Community Exchange 2 has ended

Welcome to the agenda for the second IATI ‘Virtual Community Exchange’ (VCE 2), one of two online events taking place in 2021 to bring together the global IATI community. Join VCE 2 on 12 and 13 October 2021 to help us consider IATI’s progress vis-à-vis the current state of transparency and open data in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals and COVID-19. During VCE 2, you will hear about recent and upcoming IATI activities and how you can participate, be inspired during sessions led by other members of the IATI community and engage with peers in the open data and transparency space. Anyone with an interest in open data, transparency or development cooperation is welcome to join! 

The VCE will offer three parallel sessions simultaneously, and participants are welcome to attend a session from each time slot, or to ’pick and choose’ sessions over the course of two days. Find out how to get prepared with this one-pager, ‘Getting Ready for the VCE’, or view the comprehensive logistical note for the event - and don’t forget to register by 11 October!

Questions? Drop us a line at info@iatistandard.org or post in our digital community platform, IATI Connect. We look forward to seeing you virtually on 12 and 13 October!

Lessons learnt from tracking and using COVID-19 IATI data (Community Session organised by UNOCHA's Centre for Humanitarian Data)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Join UNOCHA’s Centre for Humanitarian Data for a guided tour of their IATI COVID-19 Funding Dashboard and hear more about the lessons they learned on IATI’s strengths and weaknesses for aid transparency during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

During this session, you will learn about the dashboard itself, and about the methodology the Centre developed to aggregate, filter and de-duplicate IATI data. The session will finish with an overview of what did and didn’t go well for the IATI ecosystem during the pandemic, and key recommendations for both the IATI Standard and IATI publishing practices. The session will also invite participants to discuss the best way forward for improving the IATI ecosystem (Standard, guidance notes and publishing practices) for tracking future crises. Finally, since the dashboard is open source, the Centre will describe how it might deploy the dashboard to monitor future specific crises or themes, and how others can use the code to launch their own dashboards.
