Map of projects applying the DCED Standard

Around 150 projects in over 50 countries are currently using the framework of the DCED Standard for results measurement. Use of the Standard is generally on the initiative of the implementation team, although DCED member agencies may also express preference for the Standard in their calls for proposals.

This interactive map has been created in order to allow projects working in similar geographical regions to identify each other, providing opportunities for mutual learning and sharing of experience. The map allows you to zoom in and out; clicking on a pin will provide you with the name and a short summary of each project, plus website details where possible. Note that since there are often multiple projects working very close to each other, you will not be able to see each pin/project in a particular country without zooming in on the map.To see the map as a full screen, click on the box icon in the top right hand corner.

The DCED Secretariat can be reached at, and will assist in facilitating networking and regional events where possible. Note the map is updated every two years, and was most recently updated in 2022; new entries are welcome at any time.

A list of projects using the Standard is also available as an Excel file (2022).
