New Partnership with EITI Secretariat

News/Events, Open Data

Development Gateway is proud to announce a new partnership with the Extractives Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI) Secretariat to create a flagship EITI Data Portal.

The EITI is a global coalition of governments, companies, and civil society working together to improve open and accountable management of revenues from natural resources. Public understanding of government revenues and expenditure informs public debate and choices of appropriate and options for sustainable development.

Access to open data increases awareness about how countries’ natural resources are used, how extractives revenues are spent, and how land is transacted and managed – which promotes accountability, good governance, public debate, and helps combat corruption. The EDP will allow users from around the world understand how governments manage natural resources, access open data, and follow the natural resource value chain.

Development Gateway looks forward to working with the EITI team on the flagship EDP, which will debut to the public in 2016. This work is funded by the World Bank EITI Multi-Donor Trust Fund and the EITI Secretariat.

Based on these trends, the experts explain the unique fit for DG’s skills and specific opportunities for collaboration that align with the vision of DG’s partnership with IREX, which has a long and successful history working in each sector.

Introducing: Data… for What?!

To help contextualize the new Strategic Plan, we are launching a podcast series called Data… for What?! This series consists of 5 episodes in Josh Powell and Vanessa Goas talk to DGers throughout the organization – as well as collaborators within our strategic partner, IREX - about how and why we prioritized the various elements of the new strategy. In this first episode, we talk to Kristin Lord, President and CEO of IREX about how our partnership fits into the Strategic Plan; and to Aleks Dardelli, Executive Vice President of IREX and Chair of DG’s Board of Directors, about the process of putting the Plan together at this opportune, yet precarious, global moment.
