Data Quality and Usability
UNFPA is actively engaged with the international community and continues to make data more usable and accessible by embracing technologies such as machine-readable files, APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), and data visualisations.
UNFPA continues to work with partner countries to ensure data are able to be consumed via IATI and utilized in their respective Aid information management systems (AIMS). These systems are designed to assist countries in managing their aid flows. They consist of a database of aid commitments, disbursements and activities, together with a mechanism for keeping the information continuously updated. AIMS help countries to incorporate aid flows onto their national budgets and improve the overall alignment of assistance with country priorities.
The UNFPA page of the IATI Dashboard provides statistics, charts, and metrics on the quality and usability of our IATI data releases.
