Development Gateway is proud to announce the digital publication of its 2015 Annual Report, showcasing the organization’s role as as an initiator and implementer at the heart of the Data Revolution.
As Board Chair Ad Melkert says in his introductory letter:
Fifteen years ago, inspired by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Development Gateway emerged as an independent organization. As we reflect on what has been achieved and what has been learned, and prepare for the next fifteen SDG years, our mission to empower practitioners, governments, and citizens with the knowledge they need to improve lives is even more relevant today.
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.
