Attending the celebration of World Press Freedom Day on 2-3 May, Accra? Make time to meet the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI).
You’ll discover how to access IATI data on the spending of over one million development and humanitarian activities.
Visit our booth based in the main conference venue, the Kempinski Hotel, Gold Coast City, and learn more about our work to improve the transparency of resources used to address poverty and crises.
To date, over 700 organisations have published IATI data, from donor governments, development finance institutions and UN agencies to NGOs, foundations and private sector organisations.
World Press Freedom Day 2018 is hosted by UNESCO in partnership with the government of Ghana. The two-day event brings together journalists, civil society, policy makers, representatives from the judiciary, and academia to discuss the latest developments and challenges around press freedom and the safety of journalists.
At World Press Freedom Day, IATI is also providing an introductory session on IATI for young journalists on using open data for their investigations and reports. The training session is being provided by Winnie Kamau, the founding member of the Association of Freelance Journalists, which is a network based in Kenya.
