Data and Knowledge Management for Development

Harness data - existing and new - for sustainable development, in responsible and open ways.

Sonjara's team has deep knowledge of the foreign assistance community and how it uses, creates, and stores data (qualitative and quantitative) to create knowledge for improved decision making. We understand the challenges and opportunities that recent focus on data for development offers, such as via the OMB open data act, International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), the DATA act, and Foreign Assistance Transparency and Accountability Act (FATA), as well as USAID's Program Cycle and Evaluation Policy. 

However, we also understand that no IT system will create a culture of data driven-decision making; instead, different stakeholders are needed to make a knowledge lifecycle that is effective and sustainable. Be it within a project, an organization, or a government Ministry, Sonjara understands the key sustainability factors required to make a information management system be worth the investment.

Sonjara has used its expertise in a variety of ways to address how data is used for performance improvement, while protecting privacy and security, and keeping an eye on accountability and transparency. We can help you think through the overall goals, legal and ethical frameworks, and implementation plans for your data.
