Preliminary review of datasets to inform the development of IGAD member state baselines
The activities detailed in this report form part of the work necessary to provide a foundation upon which to develop these tools. The TC aims to provide the IGAD member states with baseline datasets and appropriate resilience-sensitive indicators against which to measure the impact of investments, projects, interventions and activities on enhanced resilience of populations in the HoA. As a first step in satisfying this mandate, it was necessary to take stock of what types of data are available in the region that could assist in establishing a baseline reference for the IGAD member states. To this end, a scoping of data sets using key informant interview and extensive consultations in the region. In addition, a review of existing data cataloguing options to house catalogues of meta-data on resilience-sensitive indicators took place focusing primarily on interoperability of data with respect to existing catalogues in the region, such as the use of Socrata by the Kenya Open Data initiative, or the choice of CKAN for the housing or data for the CGIAR International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). What follows is a report of the process.
