DPI Safeguards

Safety & Inclusion Mind Maps

Updated as of Feb 20, 2024

What is a mind map?

A mind map is a visual representation of the various evolving safety and inclusion risks that can occur with digital transformation initiatives during in-country implementation. Mind maps are used to gather, organize, and illustrate these complex, multi-casual issues, and make them more accessible.
These mind maps are a work in progress, serving as a snapshot of all that we have learned about the risks and DPI issues from stakeholders so far. We will update this as we gather more insights through convenings, consultations, and workshops. This resource is intended for you to learn more about what we're discovering.

What questions do these mind maps address?

They address two main questions:
  • What are safety issues that emerge in digital transformation initiatives?
  • What are inclusion issues that emerge in digital transformation initiatives?
The mind maps cluster variables on different levels. This helps to identify root causes and potential ripple effects, as well as cross-linkages between issues. The clustering of these mind maps is as follows:
  • Level 1: Risk categories (as defined in the Workbook): Technical, Normative, and Organizational
  • Level 2: detailed categorization within each of the risk areas

How were these risks identified?

The risks were identified through discussions with stakeholders from academia, the private sector, civil society organizations (CSOs), practitioners, and government bodies. The map is thus the result of a bottom-up approach, gathering concerns from real-world contexts.
This was captured to provide a concrete reference point for Working Group members to grasp how these issues manifest in practice during the DPI implementation life cycle. This practical insight is crucial for crafting effective safeguards within the initiative.
