Data Responsibility Toolkit: A Guide for CVA Practitioners
This updated toolkit builds on ELAN’s widely-used 2016 Data Starter Kit, which was one of the first resources providing orientation on data privacy and security in humanitarian work.
The new toolkit offers a range of ways to work data responsibility into programme planning, design, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning) activities. The toolkit offers a ‘gold standard‘ to which organisations should aspire, and identifies both legal and ethical implications that we should be mindful of in our treatment of data. The toolkit is structured according to the stages of the data lifecycle and split into 7 tip sheets which address issues of Context and Organisational Capacity; Design and Plan; and Implementation. While this toolkit is aimed at CVA, much of the guidance can extend to other humanitarian programmes as well.
