An online communication, reporting and monitoring hub for all your projects
Implementing effective international development programmes can be hard. Especially when it involves lots of organisations in multiple locations.
Akvo Really Simple Reporting lets you co-ordinate activities, monitor and share results, and continuously improve.
Show the scope and range of your work on your website, or create a new site. Make it visible, searchable and discoverable.
Show your results online, export template and custom reports and share your work via the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI).
Give programme managers a structured stream of information and data about progress, results, value for money and workflow.

“RSR completely transformed our monitoring and information sharing process. It helped authenticate our project information through GPS locations, photographic evidence and real time updates direct from the field. When we need to share information about a specific project, we just give the RSR link. Our partners use it very passionately and results are visible. They’re very motivated when they see their stories on the website. It helped them a lot to showcase their work.”
Assistant Program Manager, Monitoring & Evaluation
“Akvo RSR has helped us promote the need for open transparency and accountability in the use of donor funds on projects in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region. We have been able to move the needle on the urgent need for open data that has allowed discussions to take place around what good governance on projects actually looks like.”
NDLink project manager
“Akvo is a value driven organisation, genuinely motivated by transparency and adding more benefits to IATI compatible reporting. RSR gives us an easy way to publish projects in IATI, a great way to openly monitor the progress of each project and useful tools for donor reporting too. The minimum publication standards of RSR increase the quality of IATI reporting and help to make the information understandable and accessible for the wider public.”

Your projects online
A web page for each project with all the key facts; who’s doing what where, who’s benefitting and how.
Your website or a new site
RSR knits seamlessly into your existing online presence incorporating your own branding and web style. Or if you prefer, we can create a standalone site.
As well as results indicators and IATI data, RSR lets you share the journey of your work with words, pictures and video.
Team members post updates on the latest status so everyone knows what’s happening.
Desk or field
The Akvo RSR Up Android app lets you post updates from your smartphone, even when you’re out of signal range.
View and export project data
Create reports using templates, or customise your own. View them online or export them.
Publish your results easily to the International Aid Transparency Initiative registry. Import IATI files to RSR and enrich and share them online with photos, videos and updates.
Export data via CSV file, IATI XML, JSON, RSS feed, Word, PDF, XLS or social media like Twitter or Facebook.
Monitor and evaluate your projects, define your objectives and indicators, and track progress using a simple web interface.
RSR's results framework makes it easy for your partners to tell you the results they’ve achieved at regular intervals, reducing the reporting burden on them and you.
Define results indicators at the programme overview level and import relevant results from implementing partners at the project level.

Akvo RSR API
An API or Application Programming Interface is a way for machines to read and write information to each other through a series of established protocols and tools.
RSR’s API lets you collect or send information automatically to or from other platforms. So if you want to pull data from RSR into your own online systems we can help you do that, and display it however you like. >>

What our partners say
Young Expert Programme (YEP)
“The abundance of positive stories from NWP partners about RSR led us to choose it as well. An important factor is that Akvo also provides people that give workshops and training. We heartily recommend RSR to any party that we are involved with!”
