Last week, we shared our schedule for this week’s Data for Development Festival, hosted by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) in Bristol, UK.
This month, we’ll be participating in the Data for Development Festival in Bristol, UK. We’ll be attending a mix of exciting sessions throughout the entire festival, but we hope to see you at the following sessions in particular:
Building Data Ecosystems for Decision-Making
Wednesday 21 March 2018, 14:00 - 15:30, Lord Mayor’s Reception Room
How can “joined-up” geospatial data support the battle against HIV/AIDS, by promoting evidence-based decision-making? Last month, Development Gateway joined our partners at the AidData Center for Development Policy in launching the Côte d’Ivoire (CIV) open geospatial data center (OpenDCH), supported by USAID-CIV and PEPFAR.
Development Gateway’s Geocoding Suite has several components, each working in tandem with aid and management information systems to assign precise geospatial data on the locations of development projects.We have recently announced the addition of a lightweight, user-friendly automatic geocoding backend tool – aptly called the AutoGeocoder.
Cómo utilizar estándares internacionales para mejorar los datos abiertos de compras y contrataciones públicas: el caso de ChileCompra
La Dirección de Compras y Contratación Pública de Chile (ChileCompra) es un líder regional de la transparencia en materia de compras públicas. Durante 2017, Development Gateway (DG) ejecutó una consultoría de elaboración de un Plan de mejora de datos abiertos para ChileCompra.
Countdown to 2030: Accelerating Momentum towards Ending Preventable Maternal, Newborn, and Child Deaths with UNICEF
DG is pleased to announce the recent launch of the Countdown 2030 Country Dashboards and Profiles. In recent months, we partnered with Countdown 2030 and UNICEF, a Countdown 2030 member, to develop a series of comprehensive dashboards that illuminate progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, Good Health and Wellbeing, which calls for the end of preventable maternal, newborn, and child deaths. The Dashboards and Country Profiles visualize data that is provided through an API serviced by UNICEF.
When it comes to technology and innovation, we often joke that the development sector lags at least 5 years behind the private sector. Worse still, in an effort to catch up, development agencies risk falling prey to fads, buzzwords, and endless jargon. The result is a staggering number of abandoned technology pilots, a paucity of evidence on what actually works, and a nagging feeling that technology is happening in spite of development agencies rather than being enabled by them.
Food security, or people’s access to “sufficient, safe, and nutritious food,” remains a global challenge. Lack of access to nutritious food is not only more likely to affect those already facing difficulties such as poverty, economic shock and public health crises; when communities do not have adequate access to nutrition, they have a harder time fighting back against these challenges.
