We’re excited to invite you to join us for a webinar on: How citizen-generated data can accelerate progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. This webinar is being hosted on the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) Knowledge Platform on May 5, 2016, 10:00 am EDT (find your timezone here).

Doubts remain about the degree to which the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals will be matched by accountable delivery on the ground.  Indeed, according to Amina Mohamed, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on the SDGs, “accountability” is “the one knot we haven’t tied”.

In this webinar, Jeff Hall, freelance consultant, and Cassia Moraes, DataShift, will explore the ways that citizen themselves can contribute data that accelerates the accountable delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals.  Through case studies and practical examples, the speakers will examine the complementarity of citizen-generated data and national statistical data, the importance of “perception-based” data, the contribution of citizen-generated data to more equitable service delivery, and practical value of citizen-generated data at the local level.

Join the subsequent e-forum on this topic May 5 to 19!

Participants will be invited to share their own examples of citizen-generated data, challenges, and ideas for further collaboration through a two-week e-forum that will be hosted in the GPSA Knowledge Platform starting May 5th, after this webinar.

We look forward to discussing this important topic with you in May!
