Established in 2011 at the High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea, The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation is a project lead by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in concert with 161 countries, 56 international organisations, and additional partners across the public and private sectors.
With a goal of bolstering the efforts of countries, foundations, and other organizations participating in international development and supporting the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Partnership is guided by four principles:
Based on these principles, open monitoring and consistent evaluation are of paramount importance to the Partnership, and require a platform to track progress on a country-by-country level, empowering Sustainable Development Goal reviews and informing strategic decisions based on accurate data and the wider global context.
Officially launched in March 2018 at the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data’s inaugural Data for Development Festival, the Global Partnership’s Dashboard is specifically designed to be the monitoring tool that powers the Partnership and meets its commitment to partner ownership, a results-based focus, openness, transparency, and inclusivity.
Built by Vizonomy, The Dashboard is powered by CARTO’s Engine API which drives the interactive maps, tables, and graphics that allow partners to track performance based on various sustainable development indicators. When logging into the app, in-app documentation is designed to guide users through its capabilities.
The dashboard is flexible, allowing users to select any indicator, year, partner country, or other attribute and have the interface update immediately. For example, a user can view available indicators for Cameroon and Ethiopia (as below), while comparing those results with the average score in the region. As a result, the dashboard presents an an easy-to-understand approach to comparative analysis, empowering partners to evaluate performance, understand historical trends, and lay the foundation for additional monitoring mechanisms.
The dashboard is built using data sets from both public and private sources, and the Global Partnership team uses CARTO to easily manage, edit, and update this data to make sure that it is accurate and relevant for partners.
The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation is confident that their dashboard will be a powerful tool for Partners and development practitioners to:
Through its use, the greater development community can improve funding processes, ensuring that money ends up in the right programs at the right time to maximize impact. By continuing to add data to, and improve the dashboard, the Global Partnership will improve the lives of people around the world for generations to come.
