Today, we’re excited to launch the first of three research reports from DataShift in each of our pilot locations - Nepal, Argentina and East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania).
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
No-one can communicate the importance of citizen-generated data better than those who are actually working with it. At DataShift, we want to highlight the civil society organisations who have told us about the tangible results they have achieved through innovative approaches to harnessing data from citizens.
The 47th Session of the United Nations Statistical Commission meeting held in New York in March 2016 was a critical milestone in defining the next steps in implementing the highly ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across the world.
In this session, we will be exploring how citizen-generated data initiatives can accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on examples from Nepal, Argentina and East Africa.
