The 2018 Spring Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group (WBG) took place amidst a striking moment in the news – one that has brought data, especially data privacy, into the spotlight.
PRESS RELEASE – As an international nonprofit, Development Gateway has become known for international thought leadership on data for development and our experience in country-led data programs around the world. We are pleased to announce that DG has received an award from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to implement an innovative, results-based project, “Data for Youth Services Collaborative (DYSC) in Côte d’Ivoire.” Over the next 27 months, we will bolster the sub-national supply and use of data for Ivorian citizens, engage youth as champions of these services, and fuel innovation.
Agriculture data being reported, collected, and visualized is growing exponentially. But are the data we’re spending so much to collect truly relevant for decision makers? We’re proud to announce that, through our Results Data Initiative (RDI), we’re working with Malawi’s Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development (MOAIWD) to design a National Agriculture Management Information System (NAMIS).
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.
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.
One may think the words “sustainable development” might be abstract and bewildering to children – until meeting the students of the Sustainable Development Club of Le Collège Bilingue in Dakar, Senegal. Week after week, middle and high school students flock to this after-school club that aims to teach them about the benefits of a clean environment as a catalyst to development.
