website of the activity
Activity description: The Development Gateway has released an open source software tool that organizations can use to coordinate international aid, relief and other development efforts. Called the Local Projects Database (LPD), this tool can be downloaded from the web. (See http://lpd.sourceforge.net/.) The tool consolidates project, organization, and contact data to share among development organizations at work in a particular country or region, enabling communications among these organizations through a web interface. The LPD is based on well-accepted standards for the exchange of project information and is being piloted by our Country Gateways in Colombia, Mongolia, Morocco, Poland, and Romania.
