Delivering data and digital solutions for international development.

We build upon nearly two decades of technical expertise to develop tools, processes, and custom analyses to help partners achieve results. DG makes development data easier to gather, access, use, and understand.

We have nearly two decades of experience across more than 70 countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Our clients and partners are key players in the data and international development space.

Across Effective Service Delivery, Total Resource Management, and Data Strategy and Policy, DG takes a decision-focused approach to the use of data and evidence.

In each area, we use a combination of our tested methods in building digital technology tools, providing advisory services on data use, and applied research. We work to document our impact, capture lessons learned, and translate those lessons into relevant inputs to global policy discussions.

Vision and Mission Statement

Our Vision

We envision a world in which institutions listen and respond to the needs of their constituents; are accountable; and are efficient in targeting and delivering services that improve lives.

Our Mission

We support the use of data, technology, and evidence to create more effective, open, and engaging institutions.

Our History

Nearly 20 years ago, Development Gateway began as an idea within the World Bank: “How can we leverage the power of the internet to understand who is doing what where, and to what effect?

DG has pursued this mission in three distinct waves:

  • 2000-2008: After a period of incubation within the World Bank, DG was spun off and began creating global public goods. During this period, DG developed and piloted the Aid Management Platform in Ethiopia and 13 additional countries.
  • 2009-2013: DG shifted focus toward country systems, and data visualization. AMP scaled from a few countries to nearly 25, and DG learned how to effectively engage with and provide support to governments. DG cofounded AidData with William and Mary and Brigham Young universities, creating a core competency of partnering with researchers to bridge the academic-policy divide.
  • 2014-2017: One of the first ICT4D organizations to show dissatisfaction  with the level of data and technology uptake, DG sought  to more deeply understand data use. Embedded in our technology programming, and in stand-alone research initiatives, we began leveraging what we’d learned, to explore how and why data was -- or wasn’t -- being used.

We’ve built on research methods from our academic partners, combined with our practical experience implementing technical tools, and the deep trust we’d gained working with countries.  Each project and partnership was an opportunity to learn about barriers to data uptake and try to improve it. This iterative approach -- continually incorporating new techniques to drive actual data use in each project -- has set DG apart from other purely technical providers. It has allowed us to develop an applied research portfolio and prioritize bigger picture thinking, translating on-the-ground learnings into policy-relevant messages.
