The IATI Secretariat has published a paper on how IATI data can be analysed to understand 2022 budgets and spending.
The purpose of the paper is to showcase how data published to IATI can be analysed and how this analysis can be done using IATI’s Country Development Finance Data (CDFD) tool. CDFD allows users to download simple, Excel-formatted IATI data on commitments, disbursements, and expenditures, as well as forward-looking budgets. The tool presents this data by country and region and is designed to enable easy analysis. This ensures that IATI data can be directly accessed by countries looking to fill data gaps at the country-level. This critical information is needed to plan, coordinate, and evaluate allocation needs down to the sector-level.
Read the Analysing IATI data to understand 2022 budgets and spending for an overview of the budget and spending data that is published to IATI, which can be accessed using IATI’s CDFD tool. The paper presents how users can assess and compare projected resources to be spent in 2022 (budgets) versus the actual spending, using data from the end of the third quarter of 2022.
