I will be able to set up a webex for the next meeting once I have the
email addresses of the participants.

I agree that IDML is a good start that needs some more work. Find attached
a brief on the latest efforts in this direction.

The OECD and DFID, amongst other institutions provide information in IDML
format to AIDA http://aida.developmentgateway.org/index.do. The schema and
other information are also available on this page.

Also, the IATI is working on standards for information sharing.

Hi there,

I think there is or maybe was an attempt to do something similar.  (with
apologies if you already know this and are building on it)

http://xml.coverpages.org/dml.html is the only
The original page seems to have died, but Simon P you have been tracking
this no?

NB IDML needs lots of work, but it was a start, so either way building on
learning form what didn't work might be useful.
