Community Systems Foundation
Community Systems Foundation (CSF) has a 50-year history of successful implementation of public sector programmes around the world.
CSF has extensive experience in providing global technical support to development projects related to statistical data analysis, application development (desktop/web), and monitoring and evaluation. For example, during the period 2004-2015, CSF’s project management team successfully increased the deployment of the United Nation’s DevInfo database system to more than 120 countries where national statistics offices, government line ministries and UN agencies are using the software to monitor human development indicators.
Our global team of development experts, information engineers, and communications specialists are based in the USA, India, Singapore, South Africa and Brazil. CSF has extensive international experience in the design, execution and implementation of human development programmes, including a broad spectrum of education projects. CSF has a successful record of five decades of working with many UN agencies, including UNICEF, UNDP, UNFPA, UNAIDS, UN Women, UN-Habitat, UN Statistics Division, WFP, WHO and The World Bank.
Data for All is a new initiative of Community Systems Foundation; its purpose is to implement innovative approaches to empower people with information through database technology, data visualization and analytics. This is in response to the increasing demand for open data and open source software technologies to leverage investments in data collection for better development outcomes through evidence-based decision support.
