For Des Chiffres et Des Jeunes (DCDJ) in Côte d’Ivoire, DG worked with partners to create a data inventory specific to the HIV/AIDS context in the country, including topics related to health, gender equality, education, and economic growth. This resource is a guide for developing your own data inventory from ideation, to launch, and beyond.
This resource is for community leaders, organizations, or government agencies seeking to build Data Fellowship programs. It outlines the need for and essential considerations to develop such fellowships with specific examples and lessons learned by the Des Chiffres et Des Jeunes (DCDJ) program over three cohorts of Fellows in Côte d’Ivoire.
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.
For as long as Development Gateway has specialized in data, we have also specialized in data visualizations. In that time, we have discovered the pitfalls and learned ways that data visualizations can increase data use. In this post, we look specifically at selecting the right type of visualization for the story you want to tell.
In 2020, we sought to answer a pivotal question: what are the good practices and lessons learned from the many existing women’s, children's, and adolescent’s health data visualization tools? In partnership with UNICEF, DG worked to identify good practices, as well as to determine any differences for emergency-focused data visualization tools, using COVID-19 as a test case.
DCDJ Data Fellows assigned to work with the National Ministry of Education in Côte d'Ivoire proposed new methods of data collection based on data collection officers’ needs. They introduced Tableau as a new way of visualizing data and creating dashboards, and conducted in-person introductory training sessions of the tools – working with partners to ensure they understood the benefits of the tool and can use them independently.
