About IATI

IATI is a global initiative to improve the transparency of development and humanitarian resources and their results for addressing poverty and crises.

IATI brings together governments, multilateral institutions, private sector and civil society organisations and others to increase the transparency of resources flowing into developing countries.

We encourage all organisations that distribute or spend resources to publish information about their development and humanitarian activities using IATI’s data standard. This is a set of rules and guidance to ensure information is easy to access, understand and use.
