Increasing the use and impact of data in humanitarian response
Hosted by: Godfrey Takavarasha
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs established the Centre for Humanitarian Data in December 2017 in the Hague. The mission of the Centre is to increase the use and impact of data in humanitarian response. The focus areas for the Centre are data services, data policy, data literacy and recently, predictive analytics.
In this session, we will look at the unique challenges of using and sharing data in the humanitarian sector. We’ll also invite participants to share their vision for what increased use and impact of data in the sector could look like in the future.
