Please Help USAID Develop Responsible Data Practices for Digital Development

By Wayan Vota on February 6, 2017

Are you managing personally identifiable data? Have you struggled with the need to share, yet protect sensitive data? Do you worry about privacy risks and want to help create best practices?

Then apply now to engage with USAID on the ethical collection, use, and management of data for field-based programs.

The Global Development Lab at USAID is working with mSTAR, Sonjara, and Georgetown University is conducting research to develop responsible data guidelines for USAID and they are seeking development projects to test their ideas with real world experiences to help:

  • Mitigate privacy and security risks for constituents and others
  • Improve performance and development outcomes through use of data
  • Promote transparency, accountability and public good through open data

Research teams will conduct field visits with selected projects, and work with the project management team to apply draft practice guidelines to each case, helping identify what practices work and any gaps in the guidelines.

The teams will also capture feedback from the project management team and the findings will be used to further refine the USAID Responsible Data Practice guidelines.

Wondering if your project qualifies? Check out the eligibility criteria and apply by February 15th.
