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.
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.
In partnership with Africafertilizer.org, the International Fertilizer Development Center, the Ghana Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ghana Statistical Service, the Ghana Revenue Authority, Ghana Cocoa Board, and other partners, DG had a soft launch of the new Ghana fertilizer dashboard.
Linda Sanogo, a DCDJ Fellow in Côte d’Ivoire, worked with a community health facility to develop and train staff on a new database, as well as complete training on other IT systems. Because of Linda’s support, the facility has reduced the number of hours spent managing patient records, and opened up more time to ensure high-quality care.
Across Abidjan, health facilities have varying levels of technical capacity, data infrastructure, and management practices to access patient health data. Through the DCDJ program, Fellow determined that a national health site performance dashboard would bring critical information together to better manage appointments, treatment plans, and patient information.
