International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI)
What is the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI)?
IATI is a global, open data initiative that provides information on aid spending and effectiveness in one common standard of structure and format. The overarching purpose of IATI is to ensure that development resources are used more effectively and efficiently in reducing poverty.
To promote greater transparency, several funders require their grant holders to publish data to IATI as a condition of receiving funding. This includes global health related awards and Official Development Assistance (ODA) funding from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
