Workstream 1 on Greater Transparency: COVID-19 tool improved to help facilitate greater transparency and coordination - November 2020 update
The Grand Bargain transparency workstream launched a new prototype tool in June 2020 to visualise data on the international response to COVID-19. This has now been updated. The prototype lets users explore contributions (FTS) and activities (IATI) data across the development and humanitarian sectors, and through consultation with signatories and partners it has been expanded to enable users to breakdown the activities data by organisation type, country and sector and to show funding flows for publishing organisations. In addition to providing an overview of the collective response to COVID-19, the development of the prototype has once again highlighted the value of high quality, timely and comprehensive open data, and has supported signatories to make further improvements to their IATI data publication.
