Development Gateway is pleased to announce that we will be implementing the Aid Flows Information System (AFIS) for the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, in collaboration with UNDP.
To support MOPIC in its efforts to better track development and humanitarian assistance, DG will customize our Aid Management Program to meet the government’s needs, and build staff capacity to use and maintain the tool.
DG’s Aid Management Platform (AMP) is the world’s premier aid information management system. It includes powerful tools for data management, reporting, and visualization of development assistance — all of which support evidence-based decision-making and resource allocation. AMP has been implemented by over 25 partner countries, and has a proven track record of sustainability.
The implementation of AFIS in Jordan will provide MOPIC with a mechanism to track both traditional development assistance, and commitments to support the refugee response through the Jordan Response Platform for the Syria Crisis. AFIS will help the ministry better anticipate aid implementation, pledge alignment, aid coordination, and aid gaps, and provide data-driven gap analysis and targeted recommendations. We look forward to this new partnership with the Kingdom of Jordan, and continuing our longtime work with UNDP.
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.
To help contextualize the new Strategic Plan, we are launching a podcast series called Data… for What?! This series consists of 5 episodes in Josh Powell and Vanessa Goas talk to DGers throughout the organization – as well as collaborators within our strategic partner, IREX - about how and why we prioritized the various elements of the new strategy. In this first episode, we talk to Kristin Lord, President and CEO of IREX about how our partnership fits into the Strategic Plan; and to Aleks Dardelli, Executive Vice President of IREX and Chair of DG’s Board of Directors, about the process of putting the Plan together at this opportune, yet precarious, global moment.
