Decision-makers and those interested in development policy can access a new website containing a sound, comparative, yet compact overview of the development policy strategies of key European donors.
The internet platform Donor Tracker was launched at the end of April 2012 by the German consultancy SEEK Development.
Donor Tracker offers up-to-date and comparative information on the development policy priorities and financial commitments of eight major European donors: UK, Germany, France, EU, Spain, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. The profiles for Norway and Sweden are not yet online, says SEEK Development, but will be available soon. The website includes information on how individual donors focus on agriculture.
Donor Tracker information is in three formats:
Donor Profiles give a compact overview of each country’s political system, the relevant actors and institutions, underlying strategies and funding commitments. They also analyse the development policy focus in the sectors health and agriculture.
The Policy Tracker provides ongoing news on development policy debates, decisions and legislation. The news can be filtered per theme or country and an RSS news feed subscription is also possible.
Cross-Cutting Analyses allow readers to obtain a transversal insight into strategic development policy issues.
SEEK Development provides consultancy to international organisations, government institutions, non-government organisations, foundations and socially committed organisations. Focus is placed on global health and international development.
