DFID

                      1 Palace Street, London SW1E 5HE
       Abercrombie House, Eaglesham Road, East Kilbride, Glasgow G75 8EA
Context

    • DFID budget is increasing 12% pa
    • Consensus around the Managing for Development
      Results Agenda
    • Creates expectations
    • So how can we help policy colleagues be more
      evidenced based?
    • The stupid things that test us -
          •   Updates - not adequately referenced
          •   Lack of metadata
          •   Short lead in times
          •   country dialogue with centre - who’s data to use

    •   What would make us more effective ?
                                                                 Page 4
Context

    •   Programmes in almost 70 countries
    •   Over 500 advisory staff – 10 disciplines
    •   Posting – 2 to 4 years
    •   Managing knowledge is difficult in general
    •   Managing knowledge about data


    •   Got to be a better way

                  better use of better statistics

“Looking for” at expense of
“looking at”

       Access
       • All the data in a single space
             (WDI, UN, Country, DAC…)
       • Metadata –means to hold/capture
       • Ideally up to the minute - available on day produced
       • Other stuff - capturing the knowledge - referencing


       Communication
       • Tools to make the messages easy and quick to absorb
       • Automating routine reports properly cited

Portal for Development Indicators

  Prototype
  • How feasible is it to have different data in the
    same space?
  • Is it useful?
  • Approached from two fronts
     • content - tested using indicators from different
       sources - not comprehensive
     • function - capturing the knowledge, additional
       graph and map features
  • Used DevInfo for convenience


                                                          Page 8
If this was easy it would have been
done already

  • Issues around standards, definitions,
    classifications
  • Content management
     • getting stuff in
     • handling revisions
     • ownership / stewardship
  • Ideally not just indicators - distributions, microdata,
    project data, expenditure data, outputs……

Expected benefits

        •   Better and more timely data analysis for policy
            and country offices
        •   More comprehensive analyses, using international
            data in conjunction with e.g. DFID expenditure;
        •   Time saving in data extraction and presentation;
        •   Easy and appropriate use by less-informed users
            including an enhanced awareness of the quality of
            the data for the end-user.
        •   Help resolve discrepancies between data sources;
        •   Coherence of the data used across DFID
        •   Information about the data known to selected
            individuals is not lost.
        •   Autotmation of routine processes and reports

useful - education
