IFAD and IATI

What we do

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative including donors, partner countries and civil society organizations which seeks to make information about aid spending easier to access, use and understand. Its purpose is to help implement the transparency commitments made in the Accra Agenda for Action and during the Busan High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in the most consistent and coherent ways. IATI has developed and agreed a common, open, international standard – the "IATI standard". This sets guidelines for publishing information about aid spending.

IFAD has been a signatory to the IATI since November 2011. In June 2012, IFAD released its initial implementation schedule for the IATI standard, which outlines how and when IFAD plans to release more information as part of its commitment to IATI.

IFAD has in 2014 published IATA data for the first time. This publication comes in fulfilment of IFAD's commitment to transparency and accountability in the use of its resources. The published data covers a wide range of information on projects financed by IFAD. Data is published on the IATI Registry in XML format. This is a computer readable language, and existing data that is mapped to IATI requirements has been converted into this format.
