Call for Case Studies: Responsible Data Practices in Digital Development

Sonjara, Inc. and Georgetown University are working with the
FHI-360-implemented mSTAR Project to conduct research on existing
practices, policies, systems, and legal frameworks through which
international development data is collected, used, shared, and released.
Based on this research, the team will develop good practice guidelines for
USAID that will be tested against real world experiences in field-based
digital development programs.

mSTAR is looking for up to three projects where we can test and apply our
draft good practice guidelines for ethical collection, use, management,
sharing and release of data in field-based digital development programs. We
want to hear from you!

What types of projects are we looking for?

· Ongoing or recently concluded projects that are using digital
technologies (SMS, IVR, mobile based data collection, USSD, software,
social media platforms, sensors/IoT, etc.) to collect, store, analyze,
manage, use and share individuals’ data.

· The data could include personally identifiable information (PII)
and/or other personal information.

· The project should have informal or formal processes for
privacy/security risk assessment and mitigation especially with respect to
field implementation of digital technologies (listed above) as part of
their program. These may be implicit or explicit (i.e. documented or
written). They potentially include formal review processes conducted by
ethics review boards or institutional review boards (IRBs) for projects.

· All sectors of international development are welcome to submit
case studies.

· Projects from all geographical regions are welcome.

· We prefer case studies from USAID-funded projects but are open to
receiving case studies from other donor-supported projects.

If your project or activity falls under the above criteria, please take a
few minutes to share your project information here

Hi everyone,

It’s been nearly a year since the Principles of Digital Development report
was launched and it is great to watch the conversations continue and grow
about the Principles in practice. As many of you may recall from our
community conversations Principle 8 Protect Privacy and Security is perhaps
the most challenging to implement.

At the USAID we have embarked on a project Responsible Data Practices in
Digital Development, to begin to address those challenges. We’re looking
for USAID-funded projects that are using ICTs to collect data in a
responsible and ethical manner to review their practices and synthesize a
set of guidelines for how USAID can employ responsible data policies and
practices further. We’d love to hear from you on any cases that you know of.

You can submit cases here
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd_QTq-0IWZFIh63JjVY7VkwUMt83ThxhptnGPvwgABtZdk-Q/viewform.
We’ve extended the deadline to March 1st, so there’s just a few more days
to submit. Please share with your colleagues also.

Best,
Merrick
