Bringing value to life
The solution to enhance sustainable development
Impact can be increased when we can build on results of other organisations. However, we don’t always know the exact activities, objectives and results (outputs/outcomes) of the various parties in a given territory. This implies that we lose both their results and the potential collaboration force, despite the fact that most of these parties thrive for the same goal or goals.
The Development Synergy & Alignment Tool (DevSAT) is dynamic online tool that allows the use to take stock of emergence aid, development, research and commercial activities in one or more countries (‘who is doing what, where, when and how for whom’). Activities are described in detail, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and National Plans, and geo-referenced at the lowest administrative unit of the specific country.
DevSAT shows the main characteristics of projects, i.e. International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) requested information, supplemented with site-specific (village level) activity details to enable analyses to increase synergy and alignment. The tool can also be used to filter the project details and map various projects dimensions, and publish projects to IATI.
It is an interactive tool that various stakeholders (government, funders, NGOs, OneUN, research organizations, etc.) can use to start interacting, sharing knowledge, and dialoguing and plan actions towards common goals within a given territory.
DevSAT provides a multi-layered map of projects linked to the SDGs (and National Plans) within a given territory, and shows linkages between those projects. It can also show missing links when an integrated development is aimed at in a given territory. It enables the user to gain insight in ongoing humanitarian aid, research and development projects, and how to move forward.
From overview to improved planning
With DevSAT this situation can be altered so that each organization knows who is doing what, where, when, and when, to increase impact.
Often accepted, but in fact an inefficient situation reducing the impact of all
