For turning aid information into impact..
In the face of Disaster Risk Management:




How can donors, recipients and NGOs better coordinate their
efforts?
How can governments better plan their budgets and optimize
external and domestic resources for Disaster Risk Reduction,
Recovery and Reconstruction (DR4)?
How can citizens provide feedback on aid projects?
How can the trends and lessons learnt from past
interventions help us doing better job in on-going and future
efforts?
1
..by improving DR4 aid information

Increase the value of DR4 aid information





Align all activities with global standards, such as HFA priorities for DRR, IATI
standards for Aid Transparency and most importantly, OECD CRS
classification codes for global inter-operability
Improve descriptions of aid activities
Maintain or improve data quality
Make aid information accessible to all
Increase the Coverage on DR4 Activities



Publish non-traditional donors
Include flows not classified as Official
Development Assistance (ODA)
Expand into private and foundation aid

Where have we reached…




Double coded all projects in the sectors with potential
having DR4 projects
Adapted AidData arbitration system to process records
according to the DR4 activities coding scheme
Finalized the technical implementation of the Disaster
Aid Tracking portal and dashboard
Conducted a series of informal interviews with data
specialists and experts to gather feedback
Beta version at gfdrr.aiddata.org
4
What’s so special about it?
Isolated and classified all DR4 projects in-line with
HFA* priorities for action
 Open source and collaborative technology
 Rich data visualization tools (dashboard) for effective
reporting and decision making
 Application Programming Interface (API)
 Fully compatible with OECD CRS

* Hyogo Framework of Action for Disaster Risk Reduction
5
Where do we want to go
Geocoding all DR4 related projects
 Allow crowd-sourcing in aid information
management and reporting
 Community-based Monitoring and Evaluation
 Mobile Applications
 Allow posting of a project specific updates, reports
and knowledge products


Aid Data and the Crowd

Need for On-the-ground Aid Information




Lack of information about outcomes
No reliable mechanism to give recipients a voice in aid
Little coordination on the ground
Opening AidData to Make DR4 Aid Better




Empower recipients and civil society to give feedback on
DR4 projects
Improve quality of aid information
Increase transparency in the aid management process
Enhance accountability in disaster related interventions
5
Next steps

To get the DAT methodology peer-reviewed and
endorsed in close collaboration with ISDR system,
OECD, IASC, DAC donors and think-tanks/experts.
This will essentially involve:




Freezing the definitions and classification criteria for
disaster related terms
Establishing a protocol for quantifying DR4 related aid
component in projects
Implementation
To extend the system in phased manner for national
DRR platforms/aid coordinating agencies
