In continuation of a longstanding partnership, CSF supported UNFPA in enhancing the FGM Joint Programme portal to allow users to access a knowledge library from across the JP, view engaging data stories, and collaborate more efficiently on DFA Monitoring.
Having used the DFA Monitoring application for several years to monitor country, regional, and global level plans on FGM, Community Systems Foundation collaborated with UNFPA to improve DFA Monitoring to best fit the needs of country focal persons and to present the information in a more compelling way on the portal.
The portal updates include the development of a bilingual knowledge library where country, regional and global documents are collated on a variety of FGM topics, six data stories that seeks to use data to tell the story of FGM around the world, and enhanced dashboards to visualize the status of FGM.
Several key improvements were also added to DFA Monitoring. These include country/regional plan dropdown, changes in Monitoring and Planning view, and the development of a FGM Results Report.
The project also consisted of nine remote sessions that supported use of DFA Monitoring in the 17 countries, for regional focal persons and at the global level.
