Directorate of Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs supports development and humanitarian action programmes implemented by a wealth of partners. A robust data centralisation and management instrument is essential. Therefore, and with the aim of modernisation, the Ministry believes that it is now necessary to transition to a professional information system.
Luxembourg’s Development Cooperation plans to profit from this transformation programme not only to facilitate the collection of information on the development programmes implemented by its many partners, but also to improve the presentation of project data for internal and external reporting purposes (IATI, OECD), to increase the reliability of data and their centralisation, and to have a system able to communicate with the SAP financial system already in place.
To that end, a roadmap has been produced, documenting the stages to be followed to develop an information system capable of meeting the expectations described above, as well as future needs. An organisational review to identify the various optimisations that could improve the functioning of the Directorate of Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs was also carried out in 2020.
