    Feedback may be directed to [email protected] in either English or French.

  3. Project Explorer Vision, Mission, and Objectives
    • Vision: The ProX is an essential global health resource, which diverse groups of Canadian actors and their global partners contribute to and leverage, in order to inform actions and investments that are amplifying women, children, and youth health and rights worldwide.
    • Mission: The ProX provides critical, accessible, and timely measurement, analysis, and reporting on the scale of Canadian investments and contributions in essential areas of global health and gender equality. Leveraging information and evidence generated by sector actors, the ProX connects users with data about what is happening around the world.We do this in order to cultivate and amplify thought leadership and improved professional practice. We believe that, through the provision of organized and robust quantitative and qualitative sources of information, we will improve the ability of users to identify potential gap areas and opportunities for improved impact.
    • Objectives: The ProX’s aims are to: i) promote collaboration, ii) enhance coordination of efforts; and iii) mobilize information, in order to improve decision-making and inspire professional excellence in global health and development. This is accomplished through data-sharing, mapping, and analyses.

We do this by:

  • Providing an organized, accessible, and robust platform for learning, by sharing data, resources, and tools which can be used to improve programming and decision-making.
  • Powering a suite of analytics tools, including maps, visualizations, reports, guidance notes, and other resources to support data collection, management, and analysis.
  • Connecting Canadian and global organizations in order to enhance collaboration and local ownership.
  • Showcasing specific impact stories and case studies of global health and gender equality excellence to foster a culture of transparency and collective accountability.

Dictionary and Data Management Procedures for Project Explorer Data Fields

SAMPLE DATA FIELD CARD

Field Data Entry Instruction Data Collected
Project budget Enter the total project budget in Canadian Dollars. If the project is being implemented in multiple countries, enter the total budget for all countries.
  • Total budget in Canadian dollars
Special note:

  • The ProX captures all sources of funding for a project, including in-kind contributions.
  • For a GAC-funded projects, the ProX budget might not match the GAC Browser budget, due to the fact that the ProX includes all sources of funding for a project including in-kind contributions.
  • In rare cases, Reporting Organisations have a yearly budget for their operations. 
Data Usage:

  • The total budget is shown on the individual ProX project page.
  • The ProX budget is used in animations on the ProX project page to calculate budget allocation per area of focus as well as budget amount per country of implementation (for multiple country projects).
  • The ProX budget is used throughout the Analytics Portal in various visuals (funding per country and region, funding per year, areas of focus by funding).

Methodology Introduction

  1. About the Analytics Portal

    The Analytics Portal is derived from the Project Explorer (ProX) database. The purpose of the Analytics Portal is to summarize, and to visualise in aggregate, the information provided in the ProX database.  The Analytics Portal is open source, with all data source files available for download.

  2. Version 2020.5

    The Analytics Portal is in the development stage. Feedback may be directed to impact(@)canwach.ca in either English or French.

Dashboard – Global Snapshot:

Definitions:

  1. « All Projects » refers to current and completed projects available in the ProX as of April 2020.
  2. « Active Projects » refers to all projects that are labelled as in-progress in the ProX for the selected year.
  3. “Total Funding”:
    a. Single-Country Projects: « Total Funding » is equal to the total project budget amount.
    b. Multi-Country Projects: Project budgets are allocated to each country based on the ‘budget percentage per country’ provided in the ProX.
  4. Currency: All dollar amounts are in Canadian Dollars (CAD).
  5. Regions:
    The global « Regions » chosen for the Analytics Portal Maps use the same regional conventions as the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, including the 2018 Report Statistical Annex measuring progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UN code list was chosen as the reference, as it specifies explicitly what countries are categorized in what regions. The calculation of the Regional % budget allocation for Global Affairs Canada-funded projects with no countries specified are based on estimates and should be interpreted with caution.

Filters:

1. Filter « Funding Source »

The “Government of Canada” sort option filters all visuals in the “Global Snapshot” section by projects funded by the Government of Canada. 

Government of Canada Note: Government of Canada is equivalent to Global Affairs Canada (GAC) or any previous iteration which includes Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD).

The “Other Funding” sort option filters all the visuals in the “Global Snapshot” section by projects funded by all other funding sources.

2. Filter « Sort by Year »

Sort Filter: 

  • « All Projects » includes all available projects in the ProX.
  • “Projects by Active Year” refers to all projects available in the ProX that are in-progress during the selected year.

Funding Note: When « Projects by Active Year » is selected, the total project budget amount per country is equally divided between all active years of the projects. This displays the average funding amount distributed per year for the project.

Mechanics:

  • How the visuals handle multi-country projects

Global Level Analysis:

The “Total Project” field provides the total count of unique projects.

Regional Level Analysis:

For multi-country projects in a given region, the project is only counted once per region. 

Country Level Analysis (ProX Map):

In the “ProX Map” visual, a multi-country project is counted in each country where the project is being implemented (i.e. 1x per country). The total project budget is distributed between all countries for the project based on the budget percentage per country provided in the ProX. 

Country Funding Note:

“Total Funding” per country is equal to the total budget allocation amounts from all projects for the specific country. 

  1. “Master Projects”

The visuals include “Master Projects” from the ProX, i.e. multi country projects and/or funding envelopes that are further dispersed to multiple projects. The sub-projects from each Master Project are excluded in order to avoid double counting.

    All data fields are optional and organizations should only include the data they are comfortable sharing. Identifying information on individuals is not collected. In addition, all data submitted by organizations is carefully reviewed by CanWaCH prior to publication. The Project Explorer does not store additional project information other than what is shared publicly.

  7. Are organizations required to share data in the Project Explorer?

    No. All Project Explorer data is contributed voluntarily by organizations and their partners, during any stage of the project lifecycle, including after completion. Organizations themselves decide what information is shared and when.

  8. If data contribution is voluntary, does this mean that the Project Explorer database is incomplete?

    We recognize that the data contained in the Project Explorer provides a robust snapshot of development activities at various moments in time. For a variety of reasons, including but not limited to community protection and privacy, evolving activities and contexts, changes in funding, and the vast and diverse number of development actors operating globally, data sharing platforms are almost always somewhat incomplete. The objective of the Project Explorer is to provide comprehensive insight and information to guide decision-making and accountability efforts, with the most robust and useful data available, within these parameters.
