1 A Partnership Between Development Gateway Brigham Young University The College of William & Mary

2 “Drinking from the Firehose”

3 1. Visualization helps make sense of information 2. But neither information nor visualization ….. imply that we will learn Avoid the illusion of learning Two Key Points

4 1. Targeting of Need 2. Donor Coordination 3. Recipient Feedback Where do information and visualization get us? The role of geocoding… Three Key Questions

5 Geocoding allows fund tracking at the sub-national level Does aid reach and help the neediest? Targeting of Need

6 Full.pdf here

7 How do we really know whether aid helps? Will visualizations mislead users? Targeting of Need

8 Do donors coordinate to target areas of need? Geographic clustering in areas of concentrated need …Spread out in areas of diffuse need Donor Coordination

11 Is clustering inherently problematic? What is missing?...cofinancing. else? The Swarm Principle

12 Geocoding makes possible leveraging the wisdom of crowds through decentralized citizen and NGO feedback Recipient Feedback

13

14 If you build it… will they really come? Locations, Incentives….not technology Recipient Feedback

15 Good, Better, Best Complexity of development: Need for other types of information Better information on aid and need over time Methods for multiple variables and identification of causal pathways Randomized Controlled Trials

16 The Illusion of Learning? We’re betting on transparency and visualization I’m on board But more information does not imply learning Visualization does not imply learning In the race for information, let’s take the time to learn
