The 2018 Aid Management Program Good Practices Workshop kicks off today in Nairobi, Kenya. We’re looking forward to facilitating open discussion, collaboration, and learning from the 7 country governments and many different types of Aid Management Platform (AMP) users that have gathered at the Workshop. This week, we hope to facilitate collaboration across countries, and to gain insight from your shared experiences.

This year’s theme is “The Art of Aid Management: How to Simplify and Beautify your Processes.” Sessions will focus on how to take advantage of new AMP tools and processes, simplify, platform use, and incentivize for data reporting.

We’ll spend time exploring new tools – such as AMP Offline – and will use design thinking to collaborate effectively. Participants will create their own training videos; hear from the Haiti, Cote d’Ivoire, and Chad country teams on recent accomplishments in AMP; and explore methods for using IATI data in country systems.

This is the the ninth year DG has hosted the Aid Management Program Good Practices Workshop.  Since AMP’s inaugural implementation in Ethiopia in May 2005, the program has changed, grown, and evolved along with the aid management sphere itself. Today, AMP has been implemented in over 25 countries on 5 continents, and has a strong track record in strengthening local ownership, resource management, and access to aid information.

We look forward to conversations and collaboration underway in Nairobi this week, developing practical strategies for simplifying and beautifying the full aid management process.

Follow along on Twitter with @DGateway and #AMPWS2018, and we’ll be posting more insights from this year’s Workshop on the blog in the coming weeks.
