The Project Browser provides basic information on CIDA-funded projects. Project profiles can be accessed through CIDA's website, through project lists linked to country pages and other pre-established lists, or by using the Project Browser's basic or advanced search functions.
As of May 2013, the Project Browser contains over 2,800 profiles, representing approximately 88 percent of CIDA's current and recently completed projects. The data presented in these profiles shows what is entered in CIDA's information systems to help manage Agency activities and is frequently updated. Some of CIDA's multilateral projects are not yet published in the Project Browser.
The Project Browser was created in 2004 and is a work in progress, offering ever-improving access to CIDA project information. It is a semi-automatic system that refreshes every 15 minutes, and individual profiles may change between refreshes. The date on which each profile was updated is included on the published profile and in the data sets. Statements on results achieved appear at the bottom of the description in some of the published profiles. This too is a work in progress and will continue in the months ahead. This data set is offered under an all-purpose licence.
