IATI and the humanitarian world

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?

IATI business case framework
The goal of this new business case framework is help your organisation to create insights in and value the benefits and costs involved in adopting the IATI standard. It can be used for:
  1. helping in decision-making between different options to improve reporting
  2. gaining alignment between everyone involved
  3. obtaining management commitment and approval for investment in an IATI adoption project
  4. understanding the qualitative and quantitative value and cost of the estimated IATI investment
  5. tracking success during and after the IATI investment
Mika Välitalo, Plan Finland, took the initiative to create the framework: “Development funds are precious and we, as development organisations, have a moral responsibility to organise our work as well as we can and overcome any waste. This framework is created to help provide understanding of the benefits IATI can have for your organisation, to assess them over time and to help advocate to others.”

Looking forward to seeing you at this talk!
