ws 1 prototypeNew prototype tool throws a spotlight on the work of local and national aid actors in Somalia
Development Initiatives has developed the Somalia Local Activity Explorer, a new prototype tool that combines data from IATI and humanitarian 3W (Who? What? Where?) datasets to provide a fuller picture of aid work in Somalia, especially activities carried out by local and national actors. The prototype was developed on behalf of the Grand Bargain transparency workstream with funding from the Netherlands, and has the potential to increase the visibility of local and national actors within open data.
