  • AidData to make trillions of dollars in development assistance compatible with IATI standard | Development Gateway
    new twist The results will be exportable in the new international aid reporting standard recently finalized by the International Aid Transparency Initiative which aims to make aid information more open and accessible The AidData database currently accounts for around 4 trillion in development activities funded by nearly 90 donor agencies between 1945 and 2010 this feature will therefore instantly make a vast quantity of aid information compatible with the IATI standard It will then be easier to mash up data on development activities with other types of information such as development statistics as in AidData s prototype web app Development Loop created with support from Esri Although the information in the IATI exports will be incomplete as it will depend on what is available in existing data sets it will be an important step in allowing donors and aid information users to assess where the gaps are and what is needed to create a more comprehensive picture The IATI export feature will be a significant contribution to aid transparency said Stephen Davenport Senior Director of Business Development at Development Gateway one of the partner institutions behind AidData and a member of IATI s Steering Committee and Technical Advisory Group We

  • World Water Day 2011: The Role of International Donors in Water Policy | Development Gateway
    Urban Challenge emphasized the fact that rapid urbanization particularly in the developing world is generating significant challenges for municipal governments in managing urban water and waste To achieve water sustainability cities must explore avenues for conservation and recycling Research suggests that the political framework for water resource management can either enable or disable innovations in water conservation and recycling Canada for example has been hindered from implementing wide scale water conservation efforts due to the multi scalar and fragmented nature of water governance Have international donors responded to this challenge When funding development assistance projects focusing on Water and Sanitation do they incorporate institution capacity building or policy reform efforts Or does their funding focus primarily on infrastructure projects like water treatment facilities and sewers AidData can be a useful resource in answering these questions allowing you to filter through Water and Sanitation projects based on a range of activity codes including Water sector policy planning and programmes and Institution Capacity Building For further background on the subject visit Zunia an online platform for knowledge exchange between development practitioners The website contains a forum devoted entirely to the exchange of resources and information on water policy and planning Here are
