Facilitating Data Convergence

The 3D Program, with ICRW Asia in the lead and the Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, is exploring the development of a data convergence process, linked to the District Convergence Planning Committee, to inform district planning and resource processes and joint monitoring by relevant departments.

Initial steps include:

  • Assessing the feasibility of collecting and analyzing household data to create a common database across departments
  • Determining the capacity and resources required to create inter-departmental linkages
  • Identifying and engaging experts and partners¬†from national, state and local levels on innovative solutions for data collection and use
