Data Collaboratives for Local Impact: Harnessing the Data Revolution for Sustainable Development (Brownbag)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Millennium Challenge Corporation and PEPFAR are working together to support Country-led Data Revolutions for Sustainable Development as part of the broader U.S. government effort to harness the data revolution for sustainable development.  The partnership will focus on goals such as improving data transparency, citizen access, and the use of data to drive decision-making and mutual accountability in partner countries.  The actual mix of activities to be funded are being considered and designed with input from a broad base of relevant country-specific and global stakeholders as well as based on country needs assessments.  Ultimately, the post-2015 sustainable development agenda will rely heavily on open data, processes, and systems for monitoring and driving progress.  This brownbag will provide an overview of the partnership and engage the audience in further defining opportunities for how the U.S. government, in collaboration with host governments, civil society, and the private sector, can most strategically support the use of data-driven decision-making and problem-solving to optimize program efficiency and impact.
