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.
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.
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.
Starting in June 2018, in partnership with Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), DG assessed the extractive data landscape in Senegal, Nigeria and Guinea to determine the feasibility of developing an Extractives Industry Data Portal (EIDP) for each country. These reports in French and English detail the findings and recommendations.
