Development Assistance Database (DAD)

Making Development Aid Transparent & Accountable

Knowing “Who is doing what, where how and with what resources” is one of the central challenges in managing foreign aid. Coordinate your development efforts based on a complete, reliable, and transparent picture of the aid landscape. DAD helps utilize external assistance most effectively, coordinate aid across donors/investors based on their areas of comparative advantage, and define assistance programs by sector and available funding. It serves as an authoritative and complete source for official data on development assistance, for aid information collection and management, visualization and analytics, reporting and publishing.

DAD comes with a large, flexible, and powerful suite of web-based querying, analytics, visualization, and reporting tools that make understanding your data easier than ever before. It provides a variety of simple ways for donors to submit data (online, offline, mobile and via mass import), and allows to generate both predefined and ad hoc/user-defined reports.

Visualize & Analyze Aid Data

Synergy’s Aid Information Management System – DAD, contains a powerful GIS mapping feature that shows the geographic distribution of development funds and activities across a country.

These map-based data visualizations help decision-makers identify actionable trends, gaps, or duplications in how development aid resources are allocated.

Bring together data on all development partners, funding, and activities. Provide policymakers and stakeholders with a comprehensive picture of development aid in your country.

Ensure that development aid is aligned to your country strategies and priorities. Make information easily available, understandable, and actionable. Do all that with DAD.

Align Development Aid to Country Strategies & Priorities

Integrate Systems & Ensure Government Transparency

Government information systems work best when they are integrated. Development Assistance Database often exchanges data with other government systems to prevent information silos, minimize data discrepancies, and provide accurate data to decision-makers. Aid-recipient governments can also become more transparent by publishing summary DAD reports, charts, and maps  on publicly accessible government websites.
