  • Existing levels of government IATI awareness and use;

  • Government priorities for aid information and how well existing IATI data meets these needs;

  • Government perceptions of IATI value-add and usability;

  • Operational, technical, and political barriers to using IATI in country aid information management systems (AIMS); and,

  • Ways in which the IATI standard and publisher community can better assist governments in leveraging IATI data.
