Data for Development and Diplomacy: the New Age

January 27, 2022 • 2:30 – 3:30 pm EST

Innovative technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) are transforming and modernizing how data is generated, collected, and analyzed across different industries. Specifically, innovative data-collection mechanisms such as geographic information systems (GIS), imagery analysis, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are being applied to address and monitor complex global development challenges. These challenges include financial crises, climate change, migration flows, and pandemics. Nonetheless, while there is a global drive to make decisions based on robust data, there are certain risks and barriers surrounding its collection and use.

Please join the Project on Prosperity and Development to launch its new report Innovative Data Collection Methods for International Development, and to examine the merits and challenges of leveraging data for development.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Premise Data.
