Development Gateway is pleased to announce that we will be implementing the Aid Management Program with the government of Moldova thanks to the generous support of UNDP Moldova.
We will leverage our experience working on aid management in over 20 different countries around the world to support the government’s commitment to share information on external assistance to enhance its effectiveness, transparency and mutual accountability.
The Moldova AMP will assist the government of Moldova in their efforts to:
- Ensure a smooth transition from its current system to AMP;
- Promote transparency through a publicly-accessible web-based portal on international assistance to Moldova;
- Explore a linkage between AMP and the government’s public financial management information systems so that aid information can inform national budget planning and execution;
- Facilitate the transfer of information from donors to government by utilizing the IATI standard and related tools.
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 to working with the government of Moldova and UNDP over the coming two years to help strengthen their effective use of the resources available for the country’s social and economic development.
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.
