IFC is looking for a qualified firm to conduct a diagnostic on the feasibility of cross border data flows and use of alternative data to facilitate access to credit for forcibly displaced persons. This study will focus on Uganda as a pilot for the East and Horn of Africa region. The objective of this study is two-fold: 1. Assess the feasibility of cross border data sharing to promote credit inclusion of refugees. Specifically, the study will help IFC to:* Map the potential data corridors in the EHA region to and from Uganda;* Identify regulatory and credit infrastructure barriers and enablers;* Identify the various cross border information sharing and models;* Understand the operational, practical, legal, and regulatory constraints to cross border data sharing and use of alternative data; and * Recommend the most active corridor and feasibility of cross border transfer of data.2. Assess the landscape of alternative data as relates to refugees. Specifically, the study will help IFC to:* Map the alternative data points generated by refugees, including the data sources, distinguishing between data already in use and data to be collected;* Identify enablers and challenges in collection and integration of alternative data into existing credit reporting systems;* Identify legal and regulatory constraints to the collection and sharing of alternative data including the data protection, privacy, and confidentiality concerns of the refugees; and * Develop recommendations on alternative data that can be leveraged, including key markets.
