DevInfo common database for strategic decision-making
Organization of the presentation ─ What is DevInfo? ─ How does the UN benefit from DevInfo at country level? ─ DevInfo as a common data platform ─ DevInfo inputs in the strategic planning and programming process: Analysis and prioritization (correlations, disaggregation) Monitoring (trends) Reporting
What is DevInfo? ─ It is a user-friendly database system that can be deployed on desktops and on the web and is distributed royalty-free ─ The system is designed to monitor human development ─ DevInfo is endorsed by the UNDG for use by Member States in monitoring the MDGs ─ It helps in the collation and presentation of data in the form of tables, graphs and maps
How does the UN at country level benefit from DevInfo? DevInfo can … … act as a common repository of data (thus reducing duplication of efforts and promoting agreement on indicators, data values, etc.) … be used as a common system for monitoring the UNDAF, MDGs, PRS, etc. … inform and guide strategic decision-making and programming … serve as a powerful data presentation tool and provide valuable inputs for advocacy purposes … help increase the accessibility of data and so promote data dissemination

Used to monitor different issues based on agency priorities Data kept in different formats Data overlaps ( ’ duplication of efforts) Sometimes contradicting data values etc… Agency-specific systems/databases/data sets
UNESCO EFA UNICEF WFFC MICS UNDP HDR WFP VAM WHO EpiInfo DevInfo as a common data platform … Common database Used to monitor national priorities (e.g. UNDAF) Data kept in one format No data overlaps ( ’ duplication of efforts minimized) No contradicting data values One source of data for: -planning and programming -monitoring -reporting UNAIDS CRIS (for UNGASS) UNFPA ICPD ILO KILM SIMPOC Common database
Comprehensive national analysis (e.g. CCA) Strategic prioritization (e.g. UNDAF or One Programme formulation) Monitoring and reporting (e.g. UNDAF annual review) DevInfo inputs in evidence-based planning and programming Data easily accessible in one central repository User-friendly tools for the presentation of data in the form of tables, graphs and maps DevInfo common database
Structure and content of the common database
The DevInfo common database is the central repository of indicators and data to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the national situation (e.g. CCA).
The indicators in the DevInfo common database can be classified in different national priority frameworks, such as the national development plan, MDGs and UNDAF
The DevInfo common database is the central repository of indicators and data corresponding to the outcomes in the UNDAF M+E Framework
Analysis and prioritization DevInfo helps present two or more indicators for easy identification of correlations and possible underlying causes
Ecuador: Percent of girl and boy workers that work more than 40 hours per week and School attendance rate of working girls and boys (percent) Easy identification of correlations and possible underlying factors Source: IPECInfo. Percent of girl and boy workers that work more than 40 hours per week: School attendance rate of working girls and boys:
Ghana: Net enrolment ratio in primary education (percent) and Proportion of households who get access to the nearest primary school within 30 minutes Easy identification of correlations and possible underlying factors Areas where households have less easy access to schools seem to have lower enrolment rates Source: GhanaInfo.
Analysis and prioritization DevInfo helps present sub-national level data for easy identification of priority geographical areas within a country
Source: DevInfo Serbia. Easy identification of priority geographical areas
Source: ESDEM. Easy identification of priority geographical areas Mozambique: HIV prevalence rate (percent)
Source: ArmeniaInfo. Easy identification of priority geographical areas High Poverty level and high Extreme poverty level Armenia: Poverty level (percent) and Extreme poverty level (percent)
Easy identification of priority geographical areas Afghanistan: Proportion of the population using improved drinking water sources (percent) and Proportion of the population using improved sanitation facilities (percent) Low Proportion of the population using improved drinking water sources and low Proportion of the population using improved sanitation facilities Source: AfghanInfo.
Analysis and prioritization DevInfo helps present disaggregated data for easy detection of disparities and discriminatory patterns, and identification of priority groups
Source: ChildInfo Honduras. Easy identification of disparities between urban and rural areas Honduras: Mean years of schooling (years) Rural areas consistently lag behind
Easy identification of disparities between sexes OPT: Unemployment rate yr olds (percent) West Bank Gaza Strip Source: PalInfo. Women are more disadvantaged in both areas
Brazil: Life expectancy at birth (in years) Source: Data from IBGE. Easy identification of disparities between ethnic groups Black men and women lag behind in all regions
Monitoring DevInfo helps show changes over time and progress towards set targets
MD Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases Target 7: Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS Tanzania: Cumulative AIDS cases (number) Source: TSED.
Target Target: Reduce child labour by 30% by 2010
Reporting DevInfo facilitates the creation of standard reports
The DevInfo common database is used to produce standard periodic reports, such as MDG reports
The DevInfo common database is used to produce standard periodic reports, such as UNDAF reports
Conclusions DevInfo common database helps increase coherence of UN at country level: –Reducing duplication of efforts –Promoting agreement on indicators, data values, etc. –Providing a common source of data as basis for planning, programming, etc. DevInfo helps in the presentation of data to support evidence-based planning and programming: –Analysis and prioritization (correlations, disaggregation) –Monitoring (trends) –Reporting (creation of standard reports)
