IATI Research Challenge for Journalists:

‘How is aid and other external resources being used to achieve sustainable development’ – based on data published to the International Aid Transparency Initiative

To celebrate the International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) 2018, the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), and UNESCO are launching the IATI Research Challenge for Journalists. Under the chairmanship of Christophe Deloire, Secretary General of Reporters without Borders, this competition invites young journalists to research. Participating journalists are encouraged to use the platform d-portal to explore IATI data, investigate in development finance issues and develop an interesting story based on your findings. Until December 20, the participants can submit an article on the progress of SDG implementation in a country of their choice - based on their assessments of IATI data1.
