Aid Effectiveness & Management
Since 2010, the Government of Nepal has been maintaining an Aid Management Platform (AMP), an “effective tool for enhancing transparency and accountability in managing foreign aid in Nepal.” Through an annual Development Cooperation Report (DCR), Nepal’s Ministry of Finance draws on AMP data to offer government officials, donors and the public an overall view of aid trends in country, as well as a series of recommendations for better targeting future development assistance.

The Gambia is our 17th African partner government, and joins 20+ UNDP-supported AMP implementations. We are looking forward to a fruitful partnership in the years to come.
This January, a newly elected U.S. Congress took the stage, bringing up the question of how it will shape U.S. foreign assistance discussions in 2015.

Working toward a self-sustainable Aid Management Program is among the highest priorities of Development Gateway. We believe that an AMP has the best chance of longevity when the government has the skills it needs, the resources it requires, and commitment from decision-makers. However, empowering a partner country to manage a program and maintain technology doesn’t happen overnight.
