Join us for “When the Data Stop: Building Resilient Subnational Data Use” on Oct. 15

October 5, 2020 Global Data Policy

News/Events, Subnational

As an international data and statistical community, we have witnessed the implications of gaps in data and digital access amidst the Covid-19 global crisis. Due to lockdown restrictions, many national governments and development partners have lost access to data sources, leaving local communities directly responsible for primary data collection and use.

Decisions continue to be made at national and local levels that will impact crisis response and recovery. DG’s Principles for Subnational Data Use (in English and French) provide good-practice guidance for designing programs that strengthen community demand, supply, and use of data to drive better outcomes – while preparing communities to be more resilient to future challenges.

Given the changed global context, how has our thinking around the Subnational Principles shifted accordingly?

On October 15 at 9:00-10:00AM EST, DG is hosting a virtual conversation on the sidelines of the 2020 Virtual UN World Data Forum, focused on strengthening local data and statistical capacities moving forward.

The State of Data in DG’s Work

As we review our strategy, we plan to share here much of what we’ve learned through programming in more than a dozen countries – from our work and from our excellent partners – about the state of data in agriculture, tobacco control, open contracting, and the extractive industries. For each theme, we’ll explore who are the key data users, the decisions they make, the most important data gaps, and the crucial risks of data (mis)use. Here we share previews from some of our flagship programs.
