Big congratulations go to Development Initiatives Poverty Research (DIPR), who yesterday became the fourth organisation, and first NGO, to publish their data in an IATI compliant format.
They have published very detailed data on the Hewlett Foundation funded aidinfo programme, and their implementation schedule includes dates for later publications of their data. Later this year and into the second quarter of 2012, they will provide further information on other projects and funding streams, including activities funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID).
The information is being published at www.aidinfo.org/open and is registered on the IATI registry. DIPR have also been working with developers to create the IATI activity viewer, which enables users to view the raw data in a more accessible format.
DIPR will share their experiences of publishing and implementation with other CSOs and NGOs. They will be publishing blogs on the process as well as producing a methodology paper, providing similar organisations with a valuable insight into the processes behind publishing IATI compliant data.
