Thanks Herman for your response. We'd be happy to talk to you further about these proposals and would welcome your ideas on developing the technical proposals ready for consultation.
I would like to mention that these modifications are the result of consultation with IATI Standard users who are M and E specialists, and that they take into account problems with the Results element that have been identified and discussed for the last two years, including in a paper from 2015 which was shared on IATI Discuss and with Netherlands colleagues directly. All the working papers are openly available on IATI Discuss. Therefore it is imperative that it is included in the Standard upgrade consultation process, where there will be ample opportunity for others to engage and discuss the proposals.
