Conceptual Framework for the Design of the National Agriculture Management Information System (NAMIS) in Malawi
This Conceptual Framework and its Executive Summary inform the Malawi Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Water Development (MoAIWD) on design and recommendations for the National Agriculture Management Information System (NAMIS). DG and MoAIWD completed a detailed landscape analysis – of priority decisions, data and tools, and data use barriers in the agriculture sector. These reports analyze and synthesize findings to inform NAMIS design around potential users.
Since 2017, DG has worked across seven countries and two regions to support the roll-out of UNICEF’s Data for Children Strategic Framework. This included developing country ecosystem diagnostics and strategic action plans for UNICEF Country Offices in Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Thailand, Viet Nam, Lesotho, and Ethiopia; and for the UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office.
This work examines the role that data plays in supporting key decisions taken by DFID at the strategy, portfolio (sector or country), and program level.
In 2016-2017, DG and the Open Contracting Partnership spent several months studying open contracting readiness across West Africa. With the support of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (UK), we have published a series of open contracting scoping studies that provide comprehensive overviews of our findings.
