At Global Integrity, we rely on our strong relationships with organizations, consultants, journalists and researchers around the world to facilitate all of our work, from our longstanding Global Integrity Report to our Local Integrity Projects. For growing the usage of our Indaba platform, which serves as the cornerstone for how we collect and manage our research processes, these partnerships are also essential.
Over the last 18 months, we have made some significant enhancements to the Indaba system or what I like to call Indaba 3.0. These changes have given us the ability to recently launch new projects with partner organizations in a much faster and timely manner, including:
- The compilation of 2012 Budget Transparency Data for States and Municipalities in Mexico by the Instituto Mexicano para la Competitividad (IMCO)
- Índice Nacional de los OGDAI 2013 through a joint collaboration between México – ARTICLE 19 and México Infórmate.
- An Access to Information Pilot Study carried out by The Carter Center
- A Right to Information Pilot Index carried out by Article 19.
Some exciting new projects that will be launching in the next few weeks are:
- A Review of commitments made by Open Government Partnership (OGP) countries carried out by the OGP – Independent Reporting Mechanism.
- The 2013 Web Index by the World Wide Web Foundation.
All of these projects now have access to a more robust Indaba platform, which we hope will serve as a useful gateway into deeper partnerships with these organizations.
If you are carrying out large-scale research and data collection projects, Indaba can help you simplify them. For more info, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] .
