Hi @Sander!

I know of three possible sessions, and would be delighted to hear from others that might be interested to discuss & collaborate on these:


With Mark Brough  & Ben Webb - IATI Secretariat  we've some things to share about tracking and modelling the "network" of IATI data, using traceability methods.  We'd have some feedback and data to share, and would relish a conversation with interested folk. 

Cross-Cutting issues

An important topic for many of those interested in using IATI data is how to find activities that cut across several themes or topics.  For example : "Food Security" doesn't fit into one single sector code, and might also have other dimensions (eg SDGs, or even certain result indicators).  It would be great to discuss how we can share methods to locate and use relevant data, and talk about the risks and opportunities in doing so.  

Humanitarian data

I know colleagues at the UN Financial Tracking Service (FTS) are very keen to discuss how IATI data can be usable and useful in humanitarian contexts, perhaps through a focus on some of the current emergency situations.  This is a long-standing topic for the community, but I think a session at the upcoming VCE will help further the conversations and understanding.

USAID would welcome the session on crosscutting topics and how to improve data sharing in emerging situations. We'd be happy to share what we are looking for and our current 'use' challenges.
