User Information for the Global Infrastructure Hub Project Pipeline (Pipeline)
The 8 defined stages of a project contained in the Pipeline record the progression of projects through the entire process from the first conception of a project to the execution of a contract or the commencement of operations.
While governments around the world often have different processes for developing infrastructure projects, every project in the Pipeline is displayed under the same system of project stages to provide consistency and comparability.
Projects shown on the dashboard and in the search fields display the most completed stage of that project.
As a project progresses through the stages it will not show as being updated until an individual stage is complete even though activities may be occurring within a stage.
For example, a project showing as having completed Stage 4 may be positioned somewhere within Stage 5, including at the very beginning of Stage 5, where none of the activities within Stage 5 may have been completed.
Personalising your Project Portfolio
The Pipeline has been designed to be fully customisable, allowing you to personalise the tool to show just those projects that you have chosen to follow. Your preferences will also feed through to both the dashboard on the home page of the site and the analytics, giving you quick and easy access to your projects and an overview of your areas of interest.
You can select projects to add to your portfolio directly from the Explore page by clicking on the star or from inside the project data itself by clicking on ‘follow project’ at the top of a project page. Selecting a project not only adds that project to your portfolio, but will also mean that you receive email notifications each time the project completes a stage, ensuring that you are always kept fully up to date on the project’s progress.
The most recently updated projects that you have followed are also displayed on your dashboard. Any followed projects not shown on the dashboard can be seen by clicking ‘Load more Followed Projects’, or by selecting Following Projects in the ‘Account’ drop down menu. The dashboard also contains the most recently updated projects. To review a more extensive list of recently updated projects, you are able to click the ‘Load more Recent Projects’ on the Dashboard.
Export DataYou are able to export your search results from the explore tab to .csv file, which is easily opened in Excel or Word.
The Pipeline has adopted the United Nations classification system for defining regions. The regions used in the Pipeline are Oceania, Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
