This is the first annual report of the International Data Responsibility Group (IDRG). The report was launched on March 3rd 2017 during the 3rd annual IDRG conference in The Hague, following two successful conferences in 2015 and 2016. The third edition of the IDRG conference comes at a time wherein digital data is starting to fuel international development, humanitarian response, and peace and justice. As those affected by conflict and crisis increasingly rely on technology for their access to information, response agencies are turning to technology to inform their relief efforts. As a consequence, a growing amount of digital data is being captured about people and events in development and humanitarian response contexts.
