Development Gateway is pleased to announce that we will be extending the implementation of the Aid Management Program with the government of Honduras, thanks to the support of UNDP Honduras, the European Union, and the Canadian International Development Agency. We will continue the implementation of the AMP (or PGC in Spanish) to support the government’s commitment to increase the efficiency of aid and to make aid information more transparent.
DG will build on the last year of work with Honduras to:
- Support the Technical Secretariat for Planning and External Cooperation (SEPLAN) to launch the PGC publicly, creating the first public portal of information on cooperation in Honduras
- Explore linkages between the PGC and the government’s financial management systems
- Provide capacity building for government staff and donors on the Aid Management Platform
- Government staff participation in the 2013 AMP Best Practices Workshop
Through a combination of technical support and institutional strengthening activities, the Aid Management Program helps governments build capacity for managing information on development finance. Development Gateway looks forward continuing its partnership with the Government of Honduras and its partners over the coming year to help strengthen their aid management and planning capacities.
15 years ago, AMP development was led by and co-designed with multiple partner country governments and international organizations. From a single implementation, AMP grew into 25 implementations globally. Through this growth, DG has learned crucial lessons about building systems that support the use of data for decision-making.
This past March, DG launched an AMP module that helps the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development in Uganda track aid disbursements in their existing Program Budgeting System. This blog examines DG’s technical process and the specific solutions used to overcome AMP-Program Budgeting System (PBS) integration challenges.
Since 2017, Development Gateway has been working with the Government of Uganda to build and update their Aid Management Platform (AMP). Uganda’s AMP houses over 1,300 on-budget projects directly from its national data management system. This year, DG built a module that interfaces with Uganda’s Program Budgeting System (PBS) to ensure that data is effectively transmitted between the two systems.
