17. Why is IATI so important? Aren’t other forms of publication just as good in their own way / for specific purposes?

IATI is the agreed standard for publishing current aid information in a common, comparable format. While donors may publish extensive information on their own website or to the DAC, it will always lack these vital elements of being current and comparable. IATI also includes some “added-value” fields, for example results, impact appraisals, sub-national location and a budget identifier.
