IATI Data Access Tools

IATI Secretariat • 5 February 2021

Below you will find a list of tools where you can access data published to IATI. 

It includes tools provided by IATI, including d-portal and the IATI Datastore, along with tools produced by the IATI community. This list is intended to be a resource for data users looking to explore IATI data and we welcome inputs from the community on how to make the list more useful. We also encourage members of the community to share if there are any tools that need to be added here. 

We will regularly update the list based on your comments!

Thanks for having this first list. There are many more to be added. I started this topic but even the portal of my organisation, https://aiddata.rvo.nl. is not added. And I mentioned others at https://projects.rvo.nl/iati-portals.
And in my point of view publishing this list only at IATI Connect is showing it to already 'IATI believers'. The goal of my topic was showing these kind of portals worldwide. So why not also highlight it at the IATI website? For example at the Homepage at 'Getting Started"

    Thanks for your quick engagement on this! With the launch of Connect we intend to shift the sharing of some resources (e.g. list of data access tools, training materials) to Connect – as they are resources that benefit from community inputs and need to be updated frequently. But on the question re: where this shared – really good point here! There are plans to share the link to this list on the IATI website and we will update when this has been done.

    This specific list is intended to capture tools that provide access to data published to IATI (using as a starting point a list created by Open Data Watch under an activity supported by the DUWG). We did check the list that you shared and added a couple from there but not all met this criteria (we overlooked the inclusion of your site but it is now added – apologies for this!). If the community would find it helpful to have a broader list of publisher portals (that contain project info) – that may or may not provide access to data published to IATI – we can create a list for that as well! And if there are ones that do indeed provide access to IATI data that we have omitted (e.g. a couple that Maaike has noted), please highlight those specifically and we can add.

    [~494] I would like to propose a few more open data country portals to be added this list:
    Germany: https://www.bmz.de/de/ministerium/zahlen_fakten/transparenz-fuer-mehr-W…
    France: data.gouv.fr
    Norway: https://www.norad.no/en/front/toolspublications/aid-transparency/

    And our meta portal on top of the whole Datastore:
    We have developed AIDA as a visual layer on top of all the available IAT data. The target group are aid professionals who can benefit by getting insight into who funds what where. By using the (IATI) standard, we can harmonise the data, so this platform can make use of all the published IATI data sets to visualise data for any IATI element (country, donor, sector etc.).

    Thanks for these inputs! We will add AIDA, the BMZ portal, and this one for the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Norad: http://udtilskudd.regjeringen.no/#/en/country?year=2020 The other one for Norway seems to provide access to the data they publish to OECD. :) And it's not clear that the French portal is providing access to data published to IATI (based on the info on the site) but let me know if you have additional info on this one!

    [~494] great if you could add these. I suggest you reach out as IATI secretariat to check directly with the French Foreign Ministry people. More effective than when I do it probably ;0).

    Since this is just meant to be a list of tools that allow you to access data published to IATI, the Validator is not included here! But perhaps there could be demand for a list of tools that help you assess IATI data quality -- both maintained by IATI and externally developed? If so, we could potentially create a list of those and share on Connect!

    [~494] well, we have been considering the validator as a data use tool so yes, I think we should expand the scope of the inventory.

    [~567] [~494] Agreed Melinda, I also favour consolidation of this product and other resources on data use pages on the IATI website, and maintain it there. Wasn't that what we agreed upon in the TOR's?
    Risk is we get two blurred IATI websites. For me the IATI website has clear pages on data use and the resources we offer should beconsolidated there. Links should point to these resources, from Connect and from elsewhere.
    At Oxfam we also struggle with triple platforms. Our experience is that you need to spell out very clearly where you keep your resources, and point to them from your collaboration tools and platforms (workplace by facebook, and teams in our case).

    Thanks Leo and Melinda - we hear you! The Secretariat is currently taking a close look at what content is posted where, so that we meet our objectives for both internal and external stakeholders, whether the purpose is for collaboration or communications.

    Just to add that I received mail from Members also pointing out to host resources like this inventory on the IATI website dedicated page.

    Thanks for flagging, Leo! [~471] or [~506] looks like we can replace OpenaidNL in the list with this new one -- Development Aid Portal?

    [~494] Openaid.nl and nlontwikkelingssamenwerking.nl will co-exist for a couple of weeks. When openaid.nl is depreciated, openaid.nl will show a page referring to the new nlontwikkelingssamenwerking.nl site. nlontwikkelingssamenwerking.nl will be the new portal in which IATI data and results will be published.

    The site openaid.nl is now redirecting to nlontwikkelingssamenwerking.nl so this is probably also a good time to update it in the list.
