ProblemDFS’ solution
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO – formerly DFID) supports Nepal’s Government with a range of complex development challenges, including generating data to use evidence more effectively in policy making through its Evidence for Development (E4D) programme. 
To support this work, DFID Nepal needed to establish a system to harmonize data from various implementing partners while ensuring data generated through programme management and evidence gathering were used to make better-informed decisions.
DFS supported the development of a highly interactive, map-centric data visualization platform pulling from various DFID partner organizations. An infographic storage center and a glossary describing secondary data sources were integrated into a new Data Visualization System (DVS) using dashboards to display socio-economic, infrastructure-related, and project output datasets over maps and charts. 
DFS updated the DVS platform with major analytical features most recently in 2019.
