Recognizing the ASM sector’s contribution to development by making data and knowledge products more accessible

For Delve’s first Data Drive, we are focusing on integrating data and knowledge products from World Bank funded activities into the Resource Library and Data Dashboards. We look forward to showcasing these new contributions and increasing Delve’s knowledge library.

If your organization has produced a new report, conducted a baseline study or has developed another type of knowledge product in the last three years, we would love to include it on the Delve platform. Learn more about how to Contribute below!

1. What is the Delve Data Drive?

Delve is working to recognize the ASM sector’s contribution to global development by making data and knowledge products on the sector more accessible.

The Delve Data Drive is an invitation to all institutions and individuals to contribute their data and knowledge products to the open platform. Delve will be creating catalogues and new dashboards to highlight the work of contributors, showcase the sector’s contribution to global development and demonstrate the value created when organizations collaborate to share knowledge.

For this first Data Drive, Delve is focusing its primary efforts internally to catalogue the World Bank’s funded activities linked to the ASM sector and to make World Bank generated knowledge products and data available and integrated into the Delve platform. This will include reports and baselines studies generated through the World Bank's Emergency Response for Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Communities Impacted by COVID-19 that funded 29 projects in over 20 countries since the onset of the pandemic in 2020.

Interested organizations and individuals are welcome to contribute their recent data, knowledge products and data collection instruments to be a part of Delve via the Delve Contribute function.

2. What type of data and resources are you looking for?

Delve welcomes interested organizations and individuals to contribute their recent knowledge products (reports, research papers, media), data (baseline studies, surveys) and data collection instruments (questionnaires, forms, protocols/methods) to be a part of Delve. Contributions of resources and data are encouraged from all thematic areas and geographies related to the ASM sector.

Contributions should be shared in a common data or file format as either the file itself or a link to the website where the contribution is hosted.
