Development Gateway is proud to announce the publication of its 2012-2014 Annual Report!
As the letter from Board Chair Mary O’Kane illustrates:
The global development conversation has evolved considerably in the last couple of years; calls for greater transparency and active citizen participation grow ever louder. As a social enterprise dedicated to building practical tools that turn information into opportunities for people to lead better lives, Development Gateway (DG) welcomes the new emphasis on open data as a catalyst for building a better world. To answer the UN Secretary General’s call for a post-2015 “data revolution,” DG has transformed itself over the past three years to meet the open data challenge.
Digital Public Goods Alliance designated DG’s Open Contracting Portal as a digital public good in September 2022. The Portal provides procurement analytics that can be used to improve procurement efficiency and, in turn, reduce corruption and increase impact.
Representatives from Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) will be attending the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) from September 5-9 in Kigali, Rwanda to highlight two projects: the Visualizing Insights on African Agriculture (VIFAA) project and the Farmer-Centric Data Governance Models project.
In Episode 2 of "Data…for What?!," a podcast series from Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) which explores our new strategic plan, Josh Powell met with experts from DG and IREX to discuss DG’s expansion into the education, media and disinformation, and youth sectors. The conversations explore the most pressing challenges and greatest opportunities for data and technology to positively impact these sectors and discuss how these trends are likely to play out in the years ahead. Based on these trends, the experts explain the unique fit for DG’s skills and specific opportunities for collaboration that align with the vision of DG’s partnership with IREX, which has a long and successful history working in each sector.
