For many organizations, working with & managing remote, global teams has become a new challenge during the pandemic.

Starting in June 2018, DG assessed the extractive industry data landscape in Senegal, Nigeria, and Guinea. The goal was to determine the feasibility of designing and implementing an Extractives Industry Data Portal (EIDP) for each country.

Stakeholders want information that will help them advocate for protecting the environment, providing youth and educational services, and ensuring access to health facilities in the community.

Twenty years ago, DG began as an idea, “How can we leverage the power of the internet to understand who is doing what, where, and to what effect?" This summer, we are celebrating DG’s 20th anniversary. We will take stock of where we have been, examine where we are now, and look to the future of DG.
