Contact Info


The IATI activity standard enables contact-info to be included for any iati-activity

The following fields can be included:

  • organisation

  • person-name

  • job-title

  • telephone

  • email

  • mailing-address

  • website


When using the IATI activity standard to declare contact info, the following should be considered:

  • Any contact-info should include at least one of the available fields.

  • More than one contact-info can be included within an iati-activity.

  • Use of the ContactType code is recommended, especially when declaring multiple contact-info.

  • Careful attention should be paid to personal data being published. Always include organisational contact-info.

  • Telephone numbers should include the international dialing code. Avoid presentation of internal telephone numbers.

  • The free-text instances of organisation, person-name, job-title and mailing-address should avoid use of text in CAPITALS, where possible.

2.01+ Considerations

In versions 2.01 and above, the following must also be considered:

  • Any freetext text for organisation, person-name, job-title and mailing-address must be included in a child narrative element, which can be repeated for different languages.
