  • Closing the Evidence Gap | Development Gateway
    we could better equip decision makers with location specific aid data Over the past three years we ve successfully developed new technical tools provided training sessions and geocoded thousands of aid financed project locations working to catalyze the geospatial revolution for development Broadly speaking this work has been successful the Aid Management Platform s GIS Module rolled out to 10 countries allows government officials development partners and the public to better track where development funding goes in country Additional partnerships with the World Bank African Development Bank Asian Development Bank and USAID missions have further expanded the accessibility of geocoding and geospatial technology in development processes However how is this information being used to allocate monitor and evaluate development assistance To date some early adopters including the Government of Nepal and USAID Peru have begun to use geocoded aid information for institutional reporting and decision making processes However as of yet there is little systematic evidence available to understand whether when how and why government civil society and development partner decision makers are using this data We aim to help close this evidence gap Over the coming months the AidData consortium will be conducting three country level ethnographic studies in

  • Crosswalking data relationships for analysis | Development Gateway
    resources that improve conditions that over time meet larger objectives Figure 1 Example casual chain for reducing malaria Although identifying and validating causal pathways between donor outputs conditions and objectives is a key priority in development this is a much larger debate that goes beyond the scope of our current crosswalk activity Figure 2 Whether and how outputs lead to condition changes is still unclear For our purposes it is more important to first create clear linkages between data types across a wide range of projects and donors so that we can have a clearer picture of overall output trends To do this we will use output information as well as a few classification algorithms Of these data types condition information is the most readily abundant and comprises the entirety of the microdata database we ve already compiled Many donors gather it as part of ongoing initiatives but the bulk of condition data comes from large surveys such as WHO s Global Health Observatory GHO USAID s Demographic Health Survey DHS and national census information and are not directly linked to individual projects Since these data represent entities within an administrative location indicators from many different donors can be matched and merged as we ve discussed in our last post Figure 3 Data types and tracked relationships However while condition data is becoming more ubiquitous and accessible output information is still largely buried in project documentation such as progress reports or project evaluations This is less than ideal since it represents a scenario in which outputs and conditions are only ever linked together within the context of a specific project evaluation Instead of this we d like to be able to track outputs and conditions at a larger scale and across organizations Thus although tedious our first order of business

  • RDI Consultation Readout | Development Gateway
    three countries to learn about their experiences We re also looking at actual data to see how it indicators could be linked up across donors government and implementers to promote easier sharing and wider data use The goal of the consultation meeting was to get additional insight on the questions we should explore during this Initiative Prior to the consultation we shared our aim of having candid conversations to better understand and address the practical challenges development actors face while collecting sharing and using results data to inform programming We are grateful for the attendance of representatives from Governments Of Sri Lanka Ghana and Tanzania as well as bilateral multilateral and non governmental organizations After presentations from government colleagues attendees separated into breakout sessions around data quality fostering data analysis and uptake and data sharing all topics which were voted on during a pre event poll At the end of hour long discussions key takeaway themes included Need to include civil society in the results data ecosystem Desire for increased impact evaluations and results management activities investments Calls to incentivize data collection management and sharing Demand for standardized indicators to promote interoperability between government and development partner systems Calls to strengthen country M E systems and harmonize parallel systems when possible These points were well taken and have been folded into our approach As we move forward with the RDI we re eager for additional feedback from other members of the development community and we hope some of you will answer our call Specifically what questions about results data collection sharing and use would you like answered And what outputs can we produce from this initiative that will be most helpful for your agency organization or region Finally what output outcome data can you share with us that can inform
