Community Discussion: Responsible Transparency

Following the presentation and discussion held on the second day of the VCE 2, we invite you to participate in the Community Discussion on Responsible Transparency by 22 October. Watch the recording of the VCE 2 session to get inspired and help contribute to IATI’s thinking on what it means to publish data in a ‘responsible’ way!

Country Development Finance Data

IATI data on development finance is now accessible to far more data users, with the launch of newly translated resources in an updated version of the Country Development Finance Data tool. Spreadsheets, guidance, and documentation are now available in French, and Portuguese and Spanish versions will be available by the end of October. Additional information is also now provided in the spreadsheets. Access the tool here in English and French and visit IATI Connect to learn more.
