If you are staff of a participating organization or data partner, join our community.

The Data Partnership brings together staff from participating international development organizations to build a community with shared resources and expertise that can be leveraged by future projects and operations.

Stay tuned for updates from the World Bank Data Lab!

The Data Partnership is part of the World Bank Data Lab, a community of practice for colleagues seeking to modernize project data practices through learning, networking, and shared resources.

The Data Partnership Hub is the center of activity on GitHub where specialists, researchers, data scientists and contributors can find code examples as well as open issues, start discussions and learn from colleagues by example.

Another component is our content curation. As more and more projects join the community, you will find more examples and applications of third-party data’s potential for international development. You are more than welcome to share your own contributions. Certainly your team’s efforts will be much appreciated and recognized by your peers and the public.

In addition, we are bringing the power of Jupyter Book to create a beautiful rendition of notebooks, presenting them like reading a book and improving discoverability and dissemination of knowledge.

DocumentationΒΆ

Through the Data Partnership, you have access to a trove of data documentation, code snippets, collaboration tools and compute resources, all designed to help you get started on your project more quickly and effectively.

Inspired by the literate programming paradigm, the Knowledge Hub offers a centralized place for references, examples and collaboration alongside with reproducible macros and snippets explained in natural language. It lives on GitHub and the present page you are seeing.

On our Knowledge Hub, each Data Partner has a corresponding repository on GitHub with examples and code snippets. In fact, the notebook has a double life! You can either choose work with it directly cloning from the repository or see a rendered page on your browser.
