In 2016, with our partners at the AidData Center for Development Policy, DG undertook three country studies exploring how development data influence decision-making in Timor-Leste, Honduras, and Senegal. The "Avoiding Data Graveyards" report details the findings of those studies.
Development Gateway, in partnership with DFID Nepal, conducted a detailed study of government data use in Nepal. Drawing on the perspectives of 60+ government officials, donor staff, CSO operatives, and academics, we tried to paint a picture of the government data “ecosystem” in Nepal. This report aims to provide useful insight for both Government of Nepal (GoN) and the development data community at large.
