Harnessing the Data Revolution to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals
This event will launch a new joint report by CSIS and the Japan International Cooperation Agency Research Institute (JICA-RI) examining how data innovations and the 'data revolution’ can contribute to the full implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The report analyzes the challenges and opportunities that exist in the pursuit of the data revolution globally. It also considers the specific cases of two developing countries—Laos and Myanmar—in the broader context of what will be needed to enable “leapfrog” data technologies to take hold and ultimately drive the data revolution without following the linear progression of development laid out by OECD countries.
Speakers will consider how the international development community and the private sector are supporting data innovations in support of the SDGs, and the challenges and opportunities involved in these efforts.
This event is made possible by the JICA Research Institute’s generous support for and cooperation with the Project on Prosperity and Development.
