Communicating and sharing our work

DG’s publication library includes resources, reports, white papers, policy briefs based on our data landscaping work, and more.

Written to be useful and usable, our Library is where we share learnings on barriers and incentives to data use, explore new ideas, and contribute to data policy and strategy conversations.

Digital Agricultural Ecosystem in Mali | Ecosystème Numérique Agricole au Mali

Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) and Athena Infonomics conducted an assessment of the digital agricultural ecosystem in Mali between September 2021 and January 2022. The assessment was conducted using DG’s Custom Assessment Landscape Methodology (CALM), which uses a combination of desktop research and mixed data collection methods, including key informant interviews, surveys, and data analysis to understand the context, collect user needs, and identify the links – or missing links – between key stakeholders in a specific sector.

Digitizing Extractive Industries Data

This paper shares the triumphs and challenges of building Extractive Industry Data Portals (EIDPs), tools that can streamline the annual production of extractive industries (EI) sector audit reports. Findings are based on technical assessments conducted by Development Gateway in Guinea, Senegal, and Nigeria; and on DG’s development of a first-phase EIDP in Nigeria.

So You’ve Got Gender Data, Now What Will You Do With It?

This policy paper, in English and French, explores the role of gender data and women in the extractives industry (EI). Its goal is to delve into how gender data can be used to improve inclusion, engagement, and support for women in the extractive industries (EI). Funded by the Ford Foundation, this paper is the first in a two-part Policy Paper series that builds on Development Gateway's work in the extractive industry data management. The paper includes lessons learned, gender data findings, and recommendations through our work with Women in Mining Guinea.

Designing Data Strategies
Designing Data Strategies: A Playbook for Action

For most global development and humanitarian agencies, data has historically been either a niche activity or fragmented task. But in the era of a ‘data revolution for sustainable development’ – and in a time of increasing financial scrutiny – institutions increasingly consider data and digital to be a strategic asset. This paper aims to provide a structured overview of lessons learned that may be used by those seeking to develop and implement a data strategy within international development and humanitarian organizations.

Final Report: Women in Mining Guinea Pilot Index

Final reports following DG's assessment and pilot index for Women in Mining Guinea. The index was designed to capture the real obstacles hindering women's involvement and empowerment in the mining sector. The goal is to provide stakeholders with the evidence needed to implement sustainable, gender-inclusive solutions, and to serve as an M&E tool to annually assess the progress made towards improving women’s living conditions in the industrial and artisanal mining industry.

Emergency Procurement: Lessons Learned from Covid-19 Report & Indicator Framework

DG and the Global Digital Marketplace Programme partnered to identify ways to improve government digital procurement effectiveness, efficiency, and transparency. When Covid-19 flipped the world on its head, we developed this roadmap for smarter emergency public procurement. We also provide an indicator framework that governments can use to assess current readiness for purchasing during an emergency, identify focus areas for improvement, and monitor progress.
