Now that the true “post-2015” world is upon us, the global development community must continue to maintain our momentum towards a sustainable 2030. Key to this goal will be further collaboration with governments, organizations, and citizens around the world to ensure the success of a “Data Revolution” for development.

This collaboration can — and will — take many forms. As we have learned from our own experience, one of the keys to effective cooperation is open communication between stakeholders, from both similar and diverse backgrounds. Only by breaking down self-made “silos” can we encourage new ideas and solutions to shared problems.

Organizationally, DG will continue to co-create tools for impactful outcomes. Our new partnership with the EITI Secretariat seeks to improve public understanding of extractives data for better accountability and action; work with the Government of Vietnam and World Bank will improve contracting transparency and cost effectiveness; and the Results Data Initiative will continue to delve deeper into the qualitative and quantitative environments needed to make data more useful.

As we look ahead to 2016, we’re also looking towards a sustainable 2030 — putting in place the right tools and programs to help individuals use data to build a better world.

“Data…for What?!:” Expanding into Education, Media/Disinformation & Youth

In Episode 2 of "Data…for What?!," a podcast series from Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) which explores our new strategic plan, Josh Powell met with experts from DG and IREX to discuss DG’s expansion into the education, media and disinformation, and youth sectors. The conversations explore the most pressing challenges and greatest opportunities for data and technology to positively impact these sectors and discuss how these trends are likely to play out in the years ahead. 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.
