Development Effectiveness

Over the past decade, a new global consensus has emerged on the importance of delivering development aid more effectively. From the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness to the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, the central theme is country ownership. Developing countries must lead the sustainable development of their societies, with the international community supporting national and local priorities.

Since 1997, Synergy has been working with developing country governments and international organizations to promote development effectiveness. We have been doing so by providing the Development Assistance Database (DAD) to developing countries, a country-level, country-led system for tracking aid money and projects. We have successfully implemented DAD in various contexts, from fragile states to emerging markets.

Development Effectiveness
Aid Information Management System

With over 35 country systems, Synergy DAD is the world’s leading Aid Information Management System (AIMS). It provides country governments, development partners, and citizens with a comprehensive, transparent, and accurate picture of development activities at the country level.

Our suite of products for development effectiveness has evolved in line with the needs of our clients in developing countries. Today, Synergy’s DAD, Public Investment Management System (PIMS), and State Budgeting System (SBS) together provide a complete platform for managing a country’s development aid, public investments, and national budget.

UNDP Iraq“Synergy offers two types of expertise – expertise that we required [for the project]. First, they understand about development, they understand the world of development. The second thing is their ICT knowledge. Bringing those two areas of expertise together into a coherent path is the value of Synergy. You don’t just get IT experts or computer programmers who have no idea of what the world of development is about. They’ve got those two very precious levels of expertise.”
