Modern NGOs are getting better at at collecting data, often through ICT tools or open data sources. But how do development organizations use this data, to inform plans, budgets, and management decisions – and what challenges do they face?

Join our breakout session, “Data Uptake and Use in the Modern NGO” next Wednesday (3:15-4:15 PM) to find out!

At next week’s InterAction Forum, we will be discussing these challenges (and opportunities) with leading NGO representatives. Discussants will include: Nancy McGuire Choi and Taryn Davis (DG), Aria Grabowski (Oxfam America), Reid Porter (InterAction), Samhir Vasdev (IREX) – and (we hope) you.

During this interactive breakout session, we will explore cross-sector solutions that can be practically adopted by participants  including tools and approaches for communicating evidence, strategies for increasing data use and demand, and methods for prioritizing impactful data.

We hope to see you next week. Be sure to follow along on Twitter with #InterActionForum and @DGateway
