Suitable for all levels, non-technical: anyone involved in humanitarian activities is strongly encouraged to attend.

This session will introduce three major humanitarian topics for IATI. The goal of the session is to set the scene for how IATI is being (or should be) operationalised amongst humanitarian actors, abd to give people high-level context for the more detailed humanitarian discussions later in the TAG.

  1. The Grand Bargain and the World Humanitarian Summit
    What is the Grand Bargain? What does it mean for the IATI ecosystem? Who are the major players (including DI)? How’s it different from donor and agency transparency?

  2. The Financial Tracking Service (FTS) and humanitarian cash flows
    What is FTS? Why do organisations report their humanitarian activities through an intermediary? How does the FTS humanitarian mandate extend beyond transparency, and how can IATI support that? What is FTS’s role in the Grand Bargain?

  3. The Humanitarian Exchange Language (HXL) and field reporting
    What is HXL, and who are the target users? How does it overlap with IATI? What kind of HXL reporting from the field can feed into the IATI ecosystem, and into FTS?
