Development Gateway, Global Development Network, and Locus Analytics
Our community envisions a powerful role for data and technology in the post- 2015 development agenda. But what specific needs will we address first? Which data and tools are most important? And how do we use data to achieve results for real people? This panel will articulate perspectives on these issues from each element of the development data “ecosystem” -- local-level data collection, analysis and visualizations, dissemination, and use for decision-making. The session will begin with a series of fast-paced, visual lightning talks by practitioners and researchers working toward data-driven development, followed by a lively debate and questions from the audience.
