Digital Governance Projects Database

Primary tabs

As a part of the stocktaking exercise initiated by the Integrated Digital Solutions (IDS) Group, a dataset was created as an inventory of all WBG investments including large ICT/e-Gov components for various sector reforms since 1995. This global dataset includes the details of ICT investments in seven categories, together with the cost, duration, and outcome ratings of completed activities, in addition to key project data extracted from the operations portal. The first version of the “DG Projects Database” including 1,100+ projects funded in 130+ countries was released publicly within the WBG Data Catalog in June 2015. There were several updates on the dataset since then (August 2017, December 2019 and January 2020). The latest version (July 2020) presents the details of 1,407 projects funded in 147 countries. This dataset can be used by all GPs and external users, to identify relevant projects in DG domain, search the contents of project documents (PAD, ICR, IEG review) using a user-defined taxonomy, and expand/customize the resulting data sets for various needs (operational support, project design, research, monitoring and quality assurance, training, etc.).
