Ford Foundation Building located at 320 E 43rd St, New York, NY 10017
Discussions around the data revolution began in 2013 in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agenda and led to questions about how national statistical offices (NSOs) can respond to increasing demands for more, better quality, disaggregated data. Many solutions have been proposed; some are being tested, but few have been implemented.
PARIS21, Data2X and Open Data Watch will host an event to share emerging data solutions. This is a critical year for NSOs and their national and international partners to move from talking about the data revolution to developing solution-oriented work plans and concrete actions to achieve the 2030 data agenda.
Through three panel discussions, experts from national statistical offices, leading international organizations, donor agencies, as well as PARIS21, Data2X and Open Data Watch, will examine what is new in tracking national-level data innovations, partnerships that help close gender data gaps, and where we stand on open data for NSOs. Come take part in this important conversation. The full agenda is attached.
