What should I upload?

An XML file that is IATI compliant

The IATI standard is at the centre of international aid transparency. This standard is a format and framework for publishing data on development cooperation activities, intended for use by all organisations engaged in development, from government donors to private sector organisations, and national and international NGOs. It was designed in close consultation with key users of development cooperation data in developing countries, to ensure its relevance and utility for a variety of different data users.

The IATI standard uses a file format called XML. It is easy to convert data in XML into other formats, such as CSV, or even use it to drive tools that can generate graphs and tables of data from queries.
