    This past fall I interviewed key stakeholders in Liberia and Sierra Leone on their data needs for aid transparency, and the majority of the respondents wanted to be able to use information to monitor projects and inform citizens about what is happening in their countries and communities. In this session we will put ourselves in their shoes and see if IATI data allows us to discover if projects happened the way they were supposed to. We will examine 3 differnent projects occuring in the same year, country, and sector, but reported by 3 differenct organizations. As a group we will examing if the content is sufficient to monitor projects, what is an IATI strength or weakness versus a reporting strength or weakness, and then we will then talk about how the information is displayed and if it is user friendly. Throughout the session we will dicuss if there are steps we can take to make IATI data easier to use and ensure it is fit for purpose.
