For 20 years, we have built systems, dashboards, and tools to create more effective, open, and engaging institutions.
Through implementations across sectors, countries, and contexts, we’ve seen firsthand what makes data, technology, and evidence effective. We use this expertise to advise governments, agencies, and organizations to better monitor, evaluate, and use data.
Our work is informed by action-oriented research, built on tested and flexible approaches that generate pragmatic lessons for global policy and implementation.
Effective Service Delivery
We cultivate data use to drive more inclusive and effective delivery of public services. We build digital dashboards and open-source tools that identify and fill key data gaps to support data-informed decision-making.
How government resources are tracked, managed, and used is central to institutional accountability. Since the launch of the Aid Management Program, DG has built and maintained a strong footprint in public financial management. Today, we also act as a link between country-level users and global data standards, providing critical feedback on what governments and civil society need in order to better use these data.
Data Strategy & Policy
Through technical implementations across the globe, we know what makes data, technology, and evidence effective. This perspective supports governments, international organizations, and local leaders in their data strategy and policy formulation.
Who We Are
We create tools that help institutions collect and analyze information; strengthen capacity to use data; and explore what incentives, structures, and processes are needed to enable evidence-based decisions. Our work spans technical assessments, agile tool development, capacity strengthening, facilitating learnings, and fostering long-term stakeholder relationships.
A Global Team
Based in more than a dozen countries, our global team benefits from diverse perspectives, an understanding of national and community-level contexts, and mutual trust from governments and partners.
In October 2021, Development Gateway became a subsidiary of IREX. Through this strategic partnership, the organizations will accelerate data use across a broad portfolio of global programs to create greater impact at a larger scale.
We believe that lasting change can be achieved by understanding and improving motivation for data use; addressing power dynamics and political barriers to collaboration and evidence use; and increasing trust between institutions and the communities they serve.
En 2020, Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA) s’est associé à Development Gateway (DG) dans le cadre du projet USDA West Africa PRO-Cashew pour développer la plateforme de collecte et d'analyse de données Cashew-IN. Le projet a identifié des lacunes dans la collecte, le stockage, l'utilisation et la diffusion des données relatives au secteur du cajou dans les cinq pays de mise en œuvre (Côte d'Ivoire, Bénin, Burkina Faso, Ghana et Nigeria). Le projet s'efforce maintenant de combler ces lacunes par le biais d'un système de gestion des données sur la noix de cajou dans plusieurs pays (Cashew-IN) qui facilitera l'accès aux données et leur…
In 2020, Development Gateway (DG) partnered with Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA) under the USDA West Africa PRO-Cashew project to develop the Cashew-IN data collection and analysis platform. The project has identified gaps in the data collection, storage, usage and dissemination related to the cashew sector in all five of the implementing countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Nigeria). The project is now working to address these gaps through a multi-country cashew data management system (Cashew-IN) that will facilitate access to and use of data to improve decision-making for policymakers, farmers, and the private sector. The ultimate goal is to generate better…
IREX’s Data Compass and Development Gateway’s CALM are methodologies for assessing data ecosystems. While each methodology produces different outputs based on different needs, both prioritize local collaboration and development to produce insights and outputs that reflect local priorities and actionable recommendations that institutions can own and implement.
