I am stepping down as Chair of the Data Use Working Group. I want to thank everyone for their hard work and contributions in DUWG meetings over the last year, and I'm happy that we've been able to make progress on IATI data use. I'd like to thank the Secretariat and everyone else in the community who's had a role in our collective progress. I am glad that we managed to have some tough but important conversations, most recently on the Datastore.
The DUWG has taken up quite a lot of my time over the last year, and particularly in recent months, and I now need to focus more of my time on my work. I'll continue to work hard to do what I can to make progress on IATI's founding purpose: getting better quality data to governments in partner countries, to improve the way aid is managed and delivered. I hope I'll continue to do this alongside a passionate community.
I'll defer to the Secretariat in terms of next steps for taking things forward.
