GEF Launches New Annual Monitoring Review (AMR) Interactive Map
By Dima Shocair Reda and Omid Parhizkar, GEF Operation and Business Strategy Team
The Results Based Management (RBM) team at the GEF presented to the GEF November 2011 41st Council Meeting its new state-of-art web-based interactive map. This new data portal was received with great appreciation and enthusiasm by Council members and Implementing Agencies alike. This work is a result of the Secretariat’s effort to enhance portfolio monitoring for GEF-5 by utilizing mapping as a way to better present and provide access to portfolio-level information.
The principal report on the GEF’s active portfolio is the Annual Monitoring Review (AMR). The rich data contained within the AMR is presented in an aggregated form through a static document. GEF stakeholders, including Council and Secretariat staff, often ask for specific manipulations of the data not necessarily included in the report. The RBM team has therefore introduced an inter-active map to upgrade the current static presentation of the GEF’s active portfolio. The dynamic web-based portal allows users to select the data most relevant to their needs in a disaggregated format.
The AMR mapping portal utilizes data provided by the GEF Implementing Agencies for projects under implementation in FY 2011 and will be updated on a yearly basis. It also includes data extracted from the GEF's Project Management Information System (PMIS) for projects since the inception of the GEF in 1991.
While the Secretariat has a number of effective tools in place to track the results chain, implementing this interactive mapping tool will further strengthen portfolio monitoring and in turn improve the Secretariat’s ability to ensure accountability, quality, and cater to a wider audience.
The AMR Mapping Portal
The new AMR interactive map (www.thegef.org/gef/RBM) introduces new features that for the first time, integrates the data received on a yearly basis, provides navigational flow, and improves presentation of information by which the user can narrow down the country selection and have access to project level information.
This data portal improves the organization, dissemination, and accessibility to stakeholders of the GEF’s active portfolio of projects and portfolio achievements. The envisioned layout is user-friendly and allows users to more easily create graphs, maps and charts summarizing information.
With the successful completion of this tool, the RBM team will begin discussions on focal area needs and will collaborate with the GEFs Scientific Technical and Advisory Panel (STAP) to further develop and design a Mapping for Results Platform which will provide access to project level results, visualize the location of our projects (geo-coding), and be tailored to focal area specific needs.
